The USDA has issued a list of Southeastern Michigan stores that may have sold the salmonella tainted ground turkey that was recalled last week.
The first sickness was in March and the first signs of a salmonella outbreak appeared in May. Yet investigators waited until August to announce a recall.
After 10 salmonella illnesses were reported in Michigan, the Agriculture Department says meat giant Cargill is recalling 36 million pounds of ground turkey.
The federal government says 10 Michigan residents became ill from the same strain of salmonella, which has affected 76 people in 26 states since March.
