The recall release stated that the raw ground turkey items were produced on October 22, 2018 and October 23, 2018. The following products are subject to recall:

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-579” inside the USDA mark of inspection or on the side of the tray. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The main worry, in this case, is that some product may be frozen and in some 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.
