Health

Dozens of new cases of salmonella linked to raw turkey products have sprung up around the country, and one person has died. 

The CDC reports an additional 74 cases of salmonella illness and one death in California. 

Since July, 164 people have gotten sick in 35 states. 63 people got so sick that had to be hospitalized. 

Many of the people who got sick reported eating or preparing different types of turkey products purchased from multiple locations. 

The CDC says the outbreak strain has been found in both live turkeys and many kinds of raw turkey products.

An estimated 1.2 million salmonella cases occur every year in the U.S. 

Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. The symptoms usually develop about 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria and last four to seven days.

Most people recover without treatment.
