The USDA has found salmonella on about a quarter of all cut-up chicken parts heading for supermarket shelves. It's a good reason to handle raw chicken carefully, wash your hands afterward, and cook the meat well.
A truckload of live turkeys arrives at the Cargill plant in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 4. Most turkeys in the U.S. are given low doses of antibiotics, which breed resistant strains of bacteria, including Salmonella.
Concerns about salmonella contamination led Cargill to recall 36 million pounds of ground turkey sold under many different brand names, including these packages at a Kroger grocery store in Redwood City, Calif.
