12 million pounds of raw beef recalled nationwide

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced JBS Tolleson, Inc., an Arizona based company, is recalling more than 12 million pounds of non-intact beef products due to possible contamination with Salmonella Newport.

This is an extension of a 6.5 million pound recall the company made back in October.

The products, including ground beef, were packaged between July 26, 2018 and September 7, 2018, and the recalled products have the establishment number "EST. 267" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

You can find a link to the recalled products on the sidebar.

An epidemiological investigation found there have been 246 confirmed cases of Salmonella Newport illnesses from 26 states with onset dates between July 26 and September 7, 2018.

Consumption of products contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis. The most common symptoms are diarrhea, cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the food. Most people can recover without treatment.

Officials urge you to check your freezers and throw out any of the products or return it to the place of purchase.
