(NYDailyNews)–Agriculture conglomerate Cargill is recalling more than 180,000 pounds of ground turkey after salmonella was found at an Arkansas meat processing plant — for the second time in just over a month.

The agri-giant recalled 36 million pounds of turkey products on August 3 after federal health officials said tainted meat from its plant in Springdale, Ark., sickened 107 people in 31 states and was linked to one death.

The company shuttered the plant in early August, but it was reopened on Aug. 17 after the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved of new safety measures.

The latest recall, announced on Sunday, is for approximately 185,000 pounds of ground turkey processed at the plant on Aug. 23, 24, 30 and 31.

No illnesses have been linked to the latest recall.

Steve Willardsen, president of Cargill’s turkey processing business, said the company was once again closing the plant pending a USDA investigation.

“We go to great lengths to ensure the food we produce is safe each serving, every time, which makes the identification and reduction of naturally and randomly occurring bacteria so challenging and often frustrating,” Willardsen said in a statement posted on Cargill’s website.

“Our resolve to determine how best to reduce human health risks from these bacteria remains unwavering,” he added.
