This outbreak is over. Always handle and cook ground turkey safely to help prevent foodborne illness.

This chart shows when people in this Salmonella outbreak got sick.

Recent illnesses may not yet be reported as it usually takes 2 to 4 weeks to determine if a sick person is part of an outbreak. The true number of sick people in an outbreak is also likely much higher than the number reported. This is because many people recover without medical care and are not tested for Salmonella.
