Cargill faces salmonella lawsuit

Company will likely face more litigation for tainted turkey products

Meat processor Cargill Inc. is facing the first lawsuit tied to dozens of reported sicknesses from turkey products contaminated with a strain of salmonella that is resistant to many antibiotics.

Cargill has recalled 36 million pounds of fresh and frozen ground turkey products this month. The recall is one of the largest meat recalls in history, according the Los Angeles Times. More than 100 people in 31 states have been infected by the salmonella strain.

The lawsuit, which a family filed Monday in a district court in Oregon, alleges that Cargill is liable for the illness and hospitalization of a 10-month-old girl who ate spaghetti and meatballs made from the company’s ground turkey.
