Hopefully they are using some sort of control chart methodology to handle the randomness. Looking at it as a process also suggests that the process has come back under control, so there is little point in recalling food.

I would be careful in extrapolating the percentages of affected Americans, as it's very likely that some people never eat ground turkey, and others eat it all the time. That is, in any given week, the same X% (<10%) of Americans eat ground turkey and Y% never do.
