Raw turkey possibly linked to Iowa Salmonella cases

Food safety experts are monitoring a Salmonella outbreak, that may be associated to raw turkey products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says 90-people, in 26 states, including two people in Iowa have been infected.  No deaths have been reported.    

Investigators say those who got sick, reported eating different types and brands of turkey products, from many different locations.   Two people lived in a  home, where pets were fed raw turkey pet food.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service has not identified a single source for this outbreak.  FSIS reminds consumers to wash their hands thoroughly after handling any raw meat and poultry products, cook these products to the safe recommended temperature, and use a food thermometer.
