TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A salmonella outbreak is linked to raw turkey products.

That outbreak has led to federal health officials to launch an investigation.

So far, 90 cases have been reported in 26 states, including Indiana and Illinois.

The actual source of the outbreak has yet to be identified.
