(Newser) – Ground turkey joins the salmonella scare parade. The CDC says one person has died and nearly 80 others have gotten sick across the country since March, apparently from eating contaminated batches of the meat, reports ABC News. The feds don't have enough information yet to issue an official recall or name brands or manufacturers. Instead, they're warning people to keep taking the precautions recommended for all ground turkey—cook it thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, wash your hands, etc. (See the CDC advisory for details.)
