The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a public health alert on Apr. 10 for approximately 211,406 pounds of raw ground turkey products, produced by Plainville Brands, LLC, a Pennsylvania establishment, due to concerns the products may have caused Salmonella Hadar illness.

A recall was not requested because it is believed that the products are no longer available for consumers to purchase.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Retail locations that may receive returned product from consumers should destroy this product immediately,” said the FSIS.
