    Cargill has issued a recall for ground turkey products.

    More ground turkey products are being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination.

    This is the second recall from Cargill Incorporated.

    It's now pulling an additional 185,00 pounds of turkey from shelves.

    The company announced on their website:

    "Cargill is initiating this recall as a result of one confirmed test sample taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) during a post-August 3 recall review of the processing facility, which yielded low levels of the same Salmonella Heidelberg strain that appears to match the strain previously associated with human illness."

    The company suspended production at a turkey factory in Arkansas as a result.  You can see a complete list with UPC codes of the recalled products here.

    This recall comes in the wake of one of the largest meat recalls in U.S. history.

    Cargill says customers with questions can call their help line at 1-888-812-1646.

    Health officials say contaminated turkey products sickened 111 people in 31 states and at least one death in California last month.
