The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Jennie-O is recalling more than 164,000 pounds of raw ground turkey products due to concerns the turkey may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The recall comes as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 52 new cases of illness associated with an outbreak strain of Salmonella found in various turkey products.

They include live turkeys, raw turkey pet food and other kinds of raw turkey.

More than 200 people in 38 states have fallen ill from the outbreak since November of last year.

The recalled Jennie-O turkey products were produced at the company’s Faribault, Minnesota, plant Oct. 22 and Oct. 23.

They are marked with the establishment number P-579 and sold in one, two and a half and three-pound packages.
