Another 5 million pounds of raw beef products are being recalled from JBS Tolleson Inc. This brings the total recall from the company to 12 million pounds of raw beef that may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The company is recalling the raw beef products that were packaged from July 26, 2018, to Sept. 7, 2018. The contaminated beef has an establishment date of EST 267 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were shipped to retail locations nationwide, according to the company.

A full list of products recalled can be found here.

The recall has been done in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The FSIS said it is concerned that some of the recalled raw beef may be in consumers freezers. It is urging consumers to throw out the affected raw beef or to return it to the place of purchase. The FSIS said that consumers should not cook or consume the recalled beef products.

This is an expanded recall of contaminated raw beef products from JBS. The FSIS and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with state public health and agriculture agencies, have identified 246 people from 25 states that have been affected by the Salmonella outbreak.

Salmonella is a bacterial illness that can cause symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours. Illness typically lasts for four to five days with some cases resulting in hospitalization. Older adults, infants, and people with weak immune systems are more susceptible to illness . Contact your health provider if you display any of these symptoms.
