The recall pertains to packages of "All Natural Turkey Burgers with seasonings Lean White Meat" with a "use by" date of December 23, 2011, the FSIS said on its website.

A Kansas company has recalled more than 14,000 pounds of ground beef due to possible E. coli contamination, federal authorities have announced.
The recalled meat, sold in large packages and distributed in numerous states, comes from Creekstone Farms Premium Beef of Arkansas City, Kansas. Some 14,158 pounds of beef, in a handful of varieties, are subject to the recall, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday in a press release.
A "third-party" inspector - not Creekstone Farms or the USDA - determined the presence of E. coli 0157:H7, according to the federal agency. The USDA classifies the recall as "Class 1," having determined "this is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."

American Food Service of Pico Rivera recalled the products, which were produced on January 31, the USDA said in a press release.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 1913" inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were sent to restaurants throughout Southern California.

In August, an outbreak of salmonella poisoning spurred a recall of more than 500 million eggs from producers across the country, and was eventually traced back to two sources – Wright County Egg Co. of Galt, Iowa, and Hillandale Farms of New Hampton, Iowa. Inspection reports released by the Food and Drug Administration indicated that neither company adhered to its salmonella prevention plans.
Further FDA investigations revealed conditions termed "stomach-churning" by food safety advocates at The Center for Science in the Public Interest. They included chicken manure in piles up to 8 feet high at Wright County and liquid manure leaking into a chicken house at Hillandale.
A Texas firm has recalled about 2,600 pounds of fully cooked, ready-to-eat smoked turkey breast products because they may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause a potentially fatal disease.

After the recall of more than 500 million eggs from a salmonella outbreak this summer, food safety advocates and survivors of foodborne illness will call for the U.S. Senate to pass a bill that has been in limbo since last year.
The groups will release a report Wednesday afternoon detailing the food recalls that have occurred since the U.S. House of Representatives passed Food and Drug Administration reform legislation in July 2009.
Since then, the bill has been awaiting action in the Senate.
Advocacy groups and survivors will call on the Senate to pass the bill (S. 510) when the Senate reconvenes.
