Most Popular Thanksgiving Dinner Item Faces Massive Recall Over Contamination, Just Weeks Before Holiday

A large-scale turkey recall has been issued just weeks before Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays.

Butterball, a North Carolina-based company, is recalling more than 14,000 pounds of ground turkey products due to a possible contamination with blue plastic, the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday.

The recall includes products shipped to retail establishments on Sept. 28, such as Kroger items.

P-7345” inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the statement.
