    Shoppers who recently purchased ground turkey from Publix locations across Florida are urged to either throw it out or return it to their nearest store after a recall was announced over fears of metal shavings being inside.

    The USDA announced the recall of over 38,000 pounds of the product from a plant that distributed the ground turkey to nine states, including Florida. The turkey was produced on September 25th and 26th and the problem was discovered the next day when employees were cleaning processing equipment.

    The following products have been named as part of the recall:

    • 1.3-lb. White Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled “Publix ground turkey breast WITH NATURAL FLAVORINGS” with ink jet printing or labeling on the side of trays displaying the first 4 digits of 7268 and 7269.
    • 1.2-lb. White Styrofoam trays with clear plastic film covering packages containing ground turkey labeled “Fit & Active Fresh Ground Turkey With Natural Flavoring” with ink jet labeling on the side of trays displaying the first 4 digits of 7268 and 7269.
