Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales, Inc. is recalling 164,000 pounds of raw ground turkey amid a wider salmonella outbreak that's sickened 216 people since November 2017, CNN reports. The USDA announced the recall Friday as the CDC reported 52 new cases of illness linked to the salmonella. The outbreak has struck 38 states since 2017, hospitalizing 84 and killing one. Jennie-O says it's recalling ground turkey in 1, 2.5 and 3-pound containers, per USA Today. Here are the labels to watch out for. (Meanwhile, a rat disease has jumped to a human for the second known time.)
