CDC and public health and regulatory officials in several states are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Reading infections linked to raw turkey products.

Illness onsets range from Nov 20, 2017, to Jun 29.

The most common side effects of people infected with salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria, the CDC said. At this time, the CDC hasn't advised consumers to avoid eating fully cooked turkey products or told retailers to take those products off the shelves.

Thoroughly wash your hands before and after preparing food, coming into contact with animals, and after using the restroom or changing diapers. Your family also can get sick by handling the raw food or by taking care of your pet. The CDC recommended that turkey products, including burgers, casseroles, and sausages, be cooked or reheated to an internal temperature of 165 degrees - including leftovers. Check the temperature by inserting a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the food.
