As millions of Americans prepare for their Thanksgiving meals, they may want to review the labels on the turkeys they’ve purchased due to a recent recall. A Minneapolis grocery store chain, Lunds & Byerly's, has issued a recall for turkeys they sold that contain an “off odor”. The “Fresh All-Natural Brined Whole Turkeys” were sold between November 18 and November 23 and contain the UPC codes of 25222500000, 25221500000, 25222600000, and 252216000000. The turkeys range in size from 10 - 24 lbs. There have not been any illnesses reported due to the turkeys. Any customer that purchased one of the recalled turkeys should return it for a full refund.
In the past couple of months, media outlets have continuously reported about numerous food products that have been recalled or discontinued due to possible health risks. Chipotle has temporarily closed several locations due to E. Coli contamination, a variety of items have been recalled due to Listeria, and an “off odor” in different meats have lead to recalls. Millions of consumer products are recalled every year, and usually after an individual has sustained an illness, injury, or death. Manufacturers of all items are required by product liability laws to produce goods that will not harm consumers. Defective, dangerous, and contaminated items inflict consumers with physical, financial, and emotional damages.
