Jennie-O Turkey Store Issues Turkey Burger Recall

Jennie-O Turkey(WILLMAR, Minn.) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service warned Monday that more than 27 tons of frozen turkey burgers are being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination.

Jennie-O Turkey Store is recalling its four-pound boxes of its All Natural Turkey Burgers with Seasonings of Lean White Meat.  The recalled boxes, containing 12 1/3-pound individually wrapped burgers, can be identified by the use-by date of Dec. 23, 2011.

Twelve cases of salmonella have been reported in connection with the contaminated turkey meat distributed last November, according to Consumer Reports.

National Chain Adds Turkey Burgers to Permanent Menu

Business Wire/CKE Restaurants(CARPINTERIA, Calif.) -- A fast food chain known for its cholesterol busting hamburgers is turning to turkey.

Carl's Jr. and Hardee’s have become the first national fast food restaurants to add lower fat turkey burgers to their permanent menus. The sister brands, owned by CKE Restaurants, have been criticized for serving up very high-calorie burgers. Now they’re hoping that a new line of charbroiled turkey burgers can help sway their critics.

“More customers today are looking for great-tasting burgers that are better for them and/or are available with a beef alternative,” said Brad Haley, executive vice president of marketing for CKE Restaurants.

The company says the new burgers have less than 500 calories each.
