JBS Tolleson Ground Beef Salmonella Outbreak

5 million pounds of beef recalled

The ground beef and ground beef products produced by JBS Tolleson are linked to the multistate Salmonella Newport outbreak by epidemiologic and traceback evidence. The contaminated products are marked with the establishment number EST. The agency posted a 33-page list of the recalled items, which were shipped to retail locations and institutions across the country.

More than 6.5 million pounds of raw beef products were voluntarily recalled Thursday from a plant in Arizona where federal officials had previously complained about "egregious" and "inhumane" livestock conditions. This is actually an announcement was made on Tuesday by the United States agriculture's foods inspection and safety department. "Even if they've eaten some of that beef and they're not feeling ill, and the family hasn't become sick, it's still really important to get rid of that product".

According to the release, FSIS is concerned that consumers may have affected products stored in the freezer. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. In just a month, between 5 August and 6 September there were total fifty seven cases of this salmonella contamination in meat in 16 states. Total number of 14 patients has been hospitalized due to this contaminated meat consumption and this ratio has been reported by the USA center for disease prevention and control.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

The USDA also reminded consumers to cook all ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
