Transcript for USDA asked to name brands involved in turkey salmonella outbreak
We turn to a warning for Thanksgiving about a deadly salmonella outbreak in Turkeys. ABC's linsey Davis has the latest. We still don't know which brands are contaminated. Reporter: We don't, and the timing couldn't be worse. It comes as millions of Americans prepare for Thanksgiving and "Consumer reports" says this is putting anyone planning to eat Turkey at risk. There is an outbreak of a drug resistant strain of salmonella that is linked to raw Turkey products. Since the outbreak began last year the strain has been associated with the illnesses of 164 people in 35 states including one death in California. Now "Consumer reports" is calling on the usda to name the brands involved in the outbreak, George. What is the usda saying? They're saying, look, we don't know. They have not identified a source or supplier of the product or products that are making consumers ill. If we had specific products that we could alert consumers with a public health alert, we would issue one. We will be watching for it. Thanks very much.
