Cargill Recalls 185,000 Pounds of Turkey
The new recall follows another issued in early August, affecting 26 million pounds of ground turkey that made dozens sick and may have killed one person. The new recall may be smaller, but it is a sign that the huge agribusiness firm is still struggling with quality control.
There have been concerns that the FDA cannot afford do its job as it tries to police the food supply. The Senate recently approved a bill to add $50 million to the agency's budget. But, the House has pressed for legislation that would cut some food safety funds. House Republicans said that the "U.S. food supply is 99 percent safe," according toThe Washington Post. Part of the 1% that is left must include huge recalls from Cargill.
