If you've got Jennie-O ground turkey in your freezer you're going to want to make sure it's not among the nearly 46 tons that have been recalled out of concern for possible salmonella contamination. 

Hormel Foods issued the recall of 91,388 pounds of ground turkey products, which include: 

  • 1 lb. ground turkey 93% lean, 7% fat with use-by-date of Oct. 1 or Oct. 2
  • 1 lb. Jennie-OTaco seasoned ground turkey with use-by-date of Oct. 2
  • 1 lb. ground turkey 85% lean, 15% fat with use-by-date of Oct. 2
  • 1 lb. seasoned ground turkey with use-bye-date of Oct. 2

The turkey was shipped Sep. 11 to 23 states including Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service "is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers," and they're warning people who have the bad turkey to throw it away or return it to the store it was bought at. 

Common symptoms of salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, cramping and fever within 12-72 hours of eating the product. The sickness can last 4-7 days. 

Most people recover without treatment, but hospitalization may be needed, especially for older adults, infants and people with weakened immune systems.
