Hoffman Town & Country Recall of Turkey Jerky

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and Hoffman Town & Country Meat Market of Detroit Lakes recalled whole-muscle turkey jerky after state investigators linked the product to four cases of salmonellosis (illness caused by Salmonella bacteria). All four of these people reported eating turkey jerky during the week prior to becoming ill (onsets of illness from August 2 through August 7). One of the cases lives in the Twin Cities metro area, and three in Greater Minnesota. One of the cases was hospitalized, but all have recovered.

Hoffman Town & Country Meat Market recalled all whole-muscle turkey jerky product sold on or before August 21, 2012. This product was sold wrapped in white butcher paper.

The incubation period for Salmonella can be up to 2 days. If you have some of the recalled turkey jerky, you can return it for a full refund, but DO NOT return it if someone ate it withing the last 48 hours until you are sure they did not contract a Salmonella infection. If you or a family member got sick from turkey jerky, any leftover jerky can be tested and used for evidence in a lawsuit against Hoffman Town & Country Meat Market.

Salmonella bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in very young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
