Federal health officials from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have announced they are investigating a salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey products.

Forty people have been hospitalized in the outbreak, which to date has not included any deaths.

In addition to MA, the CDC says illnesses have been reported in Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.

At least 40 people have been hospitalized in 26 states due to salmonella, and raw turkey may be the culprit, say USA health officials.

Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to turkey products in the past, especially ground turkey.

Despite all this, the CDC said it was not recommending people avoid turkey products altogether and instead is advising consumers and retailers to properly cook turkey before consumption. Gieraltowski said the agency didn't alert the public until now partly because it couldn't identify a common source it could tell people to avoid.

The strain "might be widespread in the turkey industry". Washing raw poultry before cooking is not recommended. Also wash your hands after petting animals or using the restroom.

The CDC says two people got sick from living in a house where raw turkey pet food was fed to pets. For example, all poultry, including ground chicken and turkey, should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.

Thoroughly wash any kitchen surfaces and utensils that come into contact with raw turkey. Leftovers should be reheated to 165°F. Germs in raw poultry juices can spread to other areas and foods.

"And also make sure you wash your hands a lot when you're handling and preparing raw turkey", she said.

Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.

The CDC said the outbreak strain has been found in raw turkey pet food in Minnesota, raw turkey samples from 19 slaughter and 6 processing establishments, and from live turkeys in several states.

Do not feed raw pet food to pets.
