Jennie-O Recalls 55K Pounds of Turkey Burger

From fear of salmonella contamination, Jennie-O Turkey Store of Willmar, Minn., recalled about 55,000 pounds of frozen raw turkey burgers Friday.
The meat has been linked to salmonella poising 12 people from 10 states, reported CBS News.
Richard A. Carlson, vice president of quality management at Jennie-O Turkey Store, said in an e-mail Sunday that they chose to recall the meat "because of potential illness from salmonella," the Star Tribune reported.
According to the Star Tribune, the nationwide recall includes 4-pound cartons of Jennie O's "All Natural Turkey Burgers With Seasonings: Lean White Meat."
The boxes, containing 12 individually wrapped burgers, were only sold at Sam's Club Stores and have a use-by date of Dec. 23, 2011, reported the Star Tribune.
According to Fox 9 News, 12 illnesses from eating the burgers have been reported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Washington, and Wisconsin.
Jennie-O says that all consumers should return the frozen meat to the place of purchase for a refund, Fox 9 News explained.
