Time to check the freezer. A company that supplies ground turkey to Publix and Weis Markets has recalled nearly 40,000 pounds of the ground meat.
Prestage Foods is recalling fresh ground turkey that was produced on September 25 and 26 because workers at one of the stores that sells the meat noticed metal shavings in a package of the ground turkey, the USDA has announced.
There have not been any reports of injury or illness, and consumers are being told to throw away the recalled turkey or return it to the store where they purchased it.
Involved in the recall:
All of the recalled turkey has the establishment number “P-22000” in the USDA inspection mark. They were shipped to distribution centers in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, according to the USDA.
