I don't think I've ever seen Kroger brand Southeastern Minnesota, but I haven't seen all the turkey, either.

  • The products are subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-7345” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

They found out about the problem when consumers complained about finding blue plastic embedded in raw ground turkey. produced by Est. 7345. There are no confirmed reports of injuries due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

As usual, inspectors are worried you have this stuff in your fridge or freezer. Toss it out or take it back to the store where you got it for a refund.
