“The outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading is present in live turkeys and in many types of raw turkey products, indicating that it may be widespread in the turkey industry. “

Those with salmonella typically report symptoms including diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Though most people recover without treatment, young children and older adults are at a great risk.

In order to avoid contracting a Salmonella infection, the CDC has advised that people “cook raw turkey thoroughly to kill harmful germs.”

“Turkey breasts, whole turkeys, and ground poultry, including turkey burgers, casseroles and sausage should always be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 ° F to kill harmful germs. Leftovers should be reheated to 165 ° F. “

You should also keep raw turkey away from other foods while cooking. After a turkey is handled, the CDC says to wash hands, counters and utensils with warm soapy water.

Turkey should be defrosted in a refrigerator rather than on a counter or in a sink.

The CDC also warns against feeding raw food to pets.

At this time the CDC is “not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked turkey products, or that retailers stop selling raw turkey products.”
