Without a source or supplier of the product or products that are making people sick, officials say the best advice for consumers is to handle raw turkey carefully - including washing their hands, cutting boards and other utensils after touching raw turkey - and to cook it thoroughly to prevent illness.

But while you're making plans to whip up the most impressive turkey dish you can muster, remember that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are still working on a almost year-long investigation into a turkey salmonella outbreak that has already claimed at least one life and left over 150 sick. Due to this investigation, additional products may also be recalled.
