Minnesota Had 1 Case Of Illness From Ground Turkey

Minnesota NewsST. PAUL  (AP) – A state health official says Minnesota had one case of salmonella poisoning illness thought to be linked to ground turkey earlier this year, out of 76 illnesses and one death nationwide.

Minnesota Health Department spokesman Doug Schultz said Tuesday that a 70-year-old woman from Carver County was hospitalized and survived the illness that came on in late March.

Federal officials say one person died and 76 people in 26 states were sickened from the same strain of the disease, with Michigan and Ohio reporting the highest numbers of cases. The cases date back to March.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hasn’t released any details about the death or where it occurred.

The federal government also has declined to identify the meat’s producer or begin a recall.
