6.5 million pounds of beef recalled due to salmonella outbreak

Oct 4, 2018

(CNN) Arizona-based meat producer JBS Tolleson, Inc. is recalling 6,500,966 pounds of “various raw, non-intact beef products” due to an outbreak of salmonella, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.

The recalled products may be contaminated with salmonella.

The recall was issued after health officials identified JBS as the common supplier of raw ground beef products found to be the “probable source” of reported salmonella illnesses. 

Fifty-seven cases of salmonella illness linked to this outbreak were reported in 16 US states between August 5 and September 6. The USDA’s FSIS was first notified of the possible outbreak in September. Receipts and shopper cards from eight patients helped investigators identify the source of the outbreak.
