Ground Turkey Recall!!!

I don’t know about you but in an effort to try and keep a low fat diet I purchase quite of bit of ground turkey.  If you use ground turkey as well then this might be of interest to you.

Today I received an email stating that there is a ground turkey recall.  Of course one of the brands is one that I frequently purchase so I thought it would be important to share.

  1. This has been on recall for a long time and unfortunately I used some of mine before I found out. I pitched the rest of it.

  2. @ Erin – There have been similar recalls in the past but this one was just issued. The item numbers are listed for each package. This particular batch was just discovered on September 11th, 2011.

  3. Thanks for the info….fortunately, I don’t use that brand….

  4. Thanks for the info, Vicki, good thing I don’t use that brand, as a matter of fact, our supermarket doesn’t even carry this brand!
    BTW-I did a shoutout to your yummy pasta, on my recent post:DDD

  5. Thanks Vicki–luckily I didn’t have any that was recalled.

  6. You really have to be on your toes these days with the recalls. Thanks for the reminder~

  7. There are a lot of recalls these days. My mom just threw away her cantelope because it was recalled. Crazy!
