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

The problem was discovered by FSIS and public health partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, who had been investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Schwarzengrund illnesses involving 5 case-patients from 2 states.  Wisconsin collected three intact Butterball brand ground turkey samples from a residence where 4 of the case-patients live.  The case-patients and ground turkey Salmonella Schwarzengrund isolates are closely related, genetically.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

WASHINGTON (March 13, 2019) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has agreed to voluntarily recall 862,520 vehicles in the United States. This recall is the result of in-use emissions investigations conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and in-use testing conducted by FCA as required by EPA regulations.

“EPA welcomes the action by Fiat Chrysler to voluntarily recall its vehicles that do not meet U.S. emissions standards,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “We will provide assistance to consumers navigating the recall and continue to ensure that auto manufacturers abide by our nation’s laws designed to protect human health and the environment.”

EPA will continue to investigate other FCA vehicles which are potentially non-compliant and may become the subject of future recalls.

Owners of affected vehicles will receive notification from FCA when parts are available for them to bring their vehicle in to be repaired. In the meantime, owners can continue to drive their vehicles.

Due to the large number of vehicles involved and the need to supply replacement components – specifically to the vehicle’s catalytic converter – this recall will be implemented in phases during the 2019 calendar year beginning with the oldest vehicles first.

Owners of affected vehicles need to wait until they receive notification from FCA prior to scheduling an appointment at the dealership. Below is the scheduled for each phase of the recall by model year:

  • MY 2011 – Q1 2019
  • MY 2012 – Q2 2019
  • MY 2013/2014 – Q3 2019
  • MY 2015/2016 – Q4 2019

Vehicles affected are as follows:

  • MY 2011-2016 Dodge Journey (JC FWD)
  • MY 2011-2014 Chrysler 200 / Dodge Avenger (JS FWD)
  • MY 2011-2012 Dodge Caliber (PM FWD CVT)
  • MY 2011-2016 Jeep Compass/Patriot (MK FWD CVT)
