WILLMAR, Minn., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The smell of summer grilling is
in the air. As more consumers seek out wholesome cuts of meat to cook,
Jennie-O Turkey Store launches three convenient and flavorful new grilling
options — JENNIE-O^® Turkey Breast Steaks, JENNIE-O^® Seasoned Turkey Breast
Steaks and JENNIE-O^® Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burgers.

These new grilling products address consumers' evolving cooking preferences.
In order to eat more nutritiously, 90 percent of Americans are choosing lean
cuts of meat, while 82 percent are limiting second helpings. Consumers are
also adding more flavor to their meats, with 85 percent preparing marinated
meats and poultry on a regular basis, according to The Power of Meat survey by
the American Meat Institute and the Food Marketing Institute. Marinated meats
and poultry also fit with the increased popularity of highly flavorful foods,
including ethnic dishes using a variety of seasonings.^1 

"At Jennie-O, we understand people want quick solutions to make it easy to eat
well," said Kim Anderson, product manager at Jennie-O Turkey Store. "Our new
Turkey Breast Steaks and Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burgers provide more flavorful
ways to enjoy convenient, great tasting, wholesome grilled meat options from a
brand that consumers trust."

Turkey Breast Steaks: A Delicious New Twist on Grilled Steak

Now it's easy to enjoy a lean steak hot off the grill with two new turkey
options. JENNIE-O^® Turkey Breast Steak is packaged ready to cook, or it can
be marinated prior to cooking. For those who prefer pre-seasoned meat,
Jennie-O offers Seasoned Turkey Breast Steak featuring a delicious garlic and
red pepper spice blend. The turkey breast steaks are available at retailers
nationwide in sizes of 16 to 24 ounces for an average suggested retail price
of $7.99.

Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burgers: A Spicy Grilled Turkey Treat

Addressing the popularity of Southwest cuisine, Jennie-O introduces an
all-white-meat turkey burger patty featuring jalapeno seasoning and Monterey
Jack cheese for a savory taste. Each 1/3-pound burger is individually
vacuum-sealed for freshness. The burgers are sold in packages of six at a
suggested retail price of $9.99. The product is available at retail locations
nationwide.

To help consumers achieve enjoyable grilling results,
Jennie-O offers the following simple tips to ensure food safety:

  oUse warm, soapy water to wash anything raw meat touches.
  oSeparate raw meat from other foods to avoid cross-contamination.
  oCook turkey to a well-done 165 degrees Fahrenheit as measured by a meat
    thermometer.
  oNever use a raw meat marinade on cooked meat; instead, create a fresh
    marinade for each new batch of delicious JENNIE-O^® turkey.
