Earlier today, the Kroger Company announced a Company’s Class I voluntary recall of approximately 36 million pounds of fresh and frozen ground turkey products, due to possible contamination from Salmonella Heidelberg.
But Smith’s Food & Drug stores are not affected in this recall. That includes all stores in Utah,  Arizona, New Mexico and Las Vegas, Nevada.  The company issued a press release to clarify the recall.
Smith’s, a division of the Kroger Co., operates 132 stores in seven western states including Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah (
Cargill processed the ground turkey products, and they were also sold under Honeysuckle and Kroger Labels.  The products had a "use of freeze by" date between Feb. 20 and Aug. 23.

As what usually happens with recalls, by the time the alert is issued, most of the product in question has already been eaten. But, there maybe a chance that people have a package sitting in their freezer, so it's worth checking.
