WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal officials say that one person has died from salmonella poisoning that appears to be linked to eating ground turkey.
Seventy-six people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease. Ohio and Michigan have had the most illnesses, with 10 cases each.
The salmonella strain is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. The illnesses date back to March, but there has not yet been a recall of turkey.
