RECALL ALERT: Beef recalled, linked to salmonella outbreak

Beef Recall

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday that they are recalling over 6.5 million pounds of “various raw, non-intact beef products” due to a salmonella outbreak.

The recall comes after health officials identified JBS Tolleson, Inc. as the common supplier of raw ground beef products found to be the likely source of the reported salmonella illnesses.

Officials say 57 cases of salmonella linked to this outbreak were reported in 16 states across the U.S. between August 5th and September 6th.

The recalled products were packaged between July 26th and September 7th, and were sold nationwide under brand names such as Walmart, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart, and JBS Generic. It has also been stated that the establishment number “EST. 267” is noted on the USDA inspection mark on the recalled products’ packaging.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to either throw them out or return them to the place they were purchased.
