Approximately 91,388 pounds of Jennie-O raw ground turkey have been recalled days before Americans gather to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Seventy-four people have fallen ill since July, and one person in California died since November 2017, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Friday.

Health officials found a multi-drug resistant strain of salmonella in ground raw turkey examined in the lab as well in live turkeys, according to the CDC. Arizona health officials found the strain of salmonella present in ground turkey that was collected from the home of an individual who had fallen ill, reported the CDC Friday.

Health officials could not pinpoint a single origin for the salmonella outbreak, “indicating it might be widespread in the turkey industry,” according to the CDC.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection that can cause diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps for four to seven days and requires antibiotic treatment. Children and the elderly are most likely to develop severe cases of salmonella, and the bacteria can be very dangerous if infection spreads to an individual’s bloodstream.
