Food Quality - At least one person has died and more than 110 in 31 states have been sickened as a result of this summer’s outbreak of Salmonella involving two distinct but closely related strains. After recalling 36 million pounds of ground turkey linked to the outbreak in early August, Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. restarted limited operations at its Springdale, Ark., plant Aug. 18. Cargill spokesman Mike Martin said that the decision had come after the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved additional antibacterial measures.
