"USDA Announces Recall of 36 Million Pounds of Ground Turkey"

"The USDA announced the recall of 36 million pounds of Cargill ground turkey linked to multiple deaths.

Federal officials say one person has died from salmonella poisoning that appears to be linked to eating the turkey.

Seventy-six people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease, which the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. The CDC did not say where the person who died became sick and released no details about the death."

The Associated Press had the story August 2, 2011.
