Turkey Burgers Now Come with Drug-Resistant Salmonella

Craving a turkey burger? You might want to think twice before eating a Jennie-O Turkey Store® All Natural Turkey Burger — 55,000 pounds of it have been recalled in 10 states after a dozen people who ate them were sickened with salmonella. You might be thinking, "another salmonella recall, so what," right? Well, the CDC and USDA think these burgers might have a super-strength salmonella strain! According to Food Poison Journal:

The outbreak strain of Salmonella Hadar is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics, which can increase the risk of hospitalization or possible treatment failure in infected individuals.

Eh, a violent bout of diarrhea coupled with typhoid fever never really hurt anyone.
