MIAMI (WSVN) - Thousands of pounds of ground turkey, including Publix’s store brand, have been recalled due to possible contamination from metal shavings.

Publix’s ground turkey and ground turkey breast in 1.3-pound styrofoam trays were among those recalled, along with 1.2-pound trays of Fit & Active Fresh Ground Turkey and 1-pound trays of Weis Markets Fresh Ground Turkey Breast.
