The contamination of the turkey, from Prestage Foods Inc., was noticed on Sept. 27, when a store found metal shavings inside a package of the turkey.

The turkey was shipped to nine states (Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee) and includes these products:

  • 1.3-pound white Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled "Publix ground turkey breast WITH NATURAL FLAVORINGS" with inkjet print on the side of trays displaying the first four digits of 7268 and 7269.
  • 1.3-pound white Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled "Publix ground turkey WITH NATURAL FLAVORINGS" with inkjet print on the side of trays displaying the first four digits of 7268 and 7269.
  • 1.2-pound white Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled "Fit & Active Fresh Ground Turkey With Natural Flavoring" with inkjet print on the side of trays displaying the first four digits of 7268 and 7269.
  • 1.0-pound white Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled "Weis Markets Fresh Ground Turkey Breast" with inkjet print on the side of trays displaying the first four digits of 7268 and 7269.

If you have one of the recalled products, you should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. And don't forget to check your freezer — you don't want to forget about a package of ground turkey in there only to consume it months from now.
