WASHINGTON — Meat giant Cargill is  recalling 36 million pounds of ground turkey linked to a nationwide salmonella  outbreak that has killed one person in California and sickened at least 76  others.

Illnesses in the outbreak date back to March and have been reported in 26  states coast to coast.

Cargill said Wednesday that it is recalling fresh and frozen ground turkey  products produced at the company's Springdale, Ark., plant from Feb. 20 through  Aug. 2 due to possible contamination from the strain of salmonella linked to the  illnesses.

Company officials said that all ground turkey production has been suspended  at the plant until the company is able to determine the source of the outbreak

The death was actually in Sacramento County - close to home for us.  They say if you cook the meat thoroughly (160 degrees) it shouldn't be a problem but having had food poisoning don't know I would want to chance it.

The plant they are talking about in outside Fayettville Arkansas.  There are a lot of chicken and turkey farms in that part of Arkansas.  It is also where Tyson foods is so there is a lot of production in that area.

I would not even give it to a dog @ 200º but then I like dogs.  ;D
