Millions Of Pounds Of Beef Recalled Due To Salmonella Concerns

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 Aug. 5 and Sept. 6.

The recalled products were packaged between July 26 and Sept. 7 and were sold nationwide under brand names Walmart, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart and JBS Generic.

The USDA inspection mark on the packaging of the recalled products contains the establishment number "EST. 267."
