Update on the turkey salmonella outbreak which has spread to 35 states as of November.
The Trump regime's Sonny Perdue, head of the USDA, is not releasing the names of companies involved in salmonella outbreak in turkeys this year, an outbreak which has spread to 35 states. The USDA when Mike Espy headed it did not withhold such information. The CDC has a history of downplaying diseases of meat and is also involved in the deception.

Many cases have not yet been counted. As of now 212 people have been sickened. That is considered an underestimated figure. In light of the lack of information it is safest for nonvegetarians to avoid turkey flesh this year.

When turkeys have leukemia it is called leukosis and can be transmitted by eating their flesh.

Turkey flesh contains pre-urine also called uric acid or trioxypurine which causes arthritis and gout and can be implicated in heart attacks through overstimulation of the heart.

Like all flesh of murdered mammals, birds, and fishes turkey flesh can cause death through various kinds of e coli and other food poisoning. The longer a turkey carcass sits unrefrigerated, the higher the chance of food poisoning from the meat, the stuffing, and/or the gravy.

In a past study Consumer Reports found dangerous bacteria on 90% of the ground turkey sold in stores.
