This afternoon, Cargill's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Warren Staley encouraged consumers to be aware of the recall announced Thursday (14 December) of turkey deli products processed at its Waco, Texas facility.

In a press conference at company headquarters, he said, ``I am seeking the help of the media to reach products that still may be in consumers' homes. Cargill is a distributor of these products and we cannot reach all retail outlets ourselves. Our concern, however, does reach all the way to the individual consumer.''
