Do you like turkey?

The news is out:

• A Salmonella outbreak tied to raw turkey meat has sickened 164 people in 35 states.
• Out of the reported illnesses, 63 people have gone to the hospital and one person from California has also died.
• The CDC is not advising consumers to stop eating or buying turkey meat, but rather to practice safety procedures.
If you’re planning on picking up your Thanksgiving turkey soon, listen up. A Salmonella outbreak tied to raw turkey meat has sickened 164 people in 35 states over the past few months, the Centers for Disease Control revealed yesterday.
The widespread cases don’t trace back to a specific brand or product, either. The strain has appeared in samples taken from raw turkey products (like ground meat, patties, or whole birds), raw turkey pet food, and live turkeys with no common supplier.
