    Salmonella Surge Linked to Meat Giant

    Dr. Mansour Samadpour points out a growth of of salmonella in a petri dish at IEH Laboratories Monday, May 17, 2010, in Lake Forest Park, Wash. Investigators have seen illness tied to a bacteria strain that federal inspectors and food manufacturers don't test for in the U.S. food supply, but there's a movement to step up surveillance amid several recent nationwide outbreaks. The Centers for Disease Control is calling for additional testing, and a Seattle law firm that specializes in food-illness lawsuits has petitioned the Agriculture Department to require testing for six additional strains of E. coli.

    Looks like it was the turkey after all. Meat giant Cargill has recalled 36 million pounds of ground turkey after the Centers for Disease Control found that Cargill's meat samples were contaminated with the same strains of salmonella connected to the recent outbreak. So far, the salmonella surge has caused one death and 76 other cases of illness across the U.S. But since the samples tested had not directly caused any illness, the Agriculture Department has not been able to name Cargill the culprit. An antibiotic-resistant salmonella superbug is also on the rise in Europe, though officials believe it first came from Africa.
