JBS Tolleson, Inc. Recalls 6.5 million pounds of beef after Salmonella Newport Contamination
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that JBS Tolleson, Inc., of Tolleson, Ariz. Recalled approximately 6,500,966 pounds of various raw, non-intact beef products that may be contaminated with Salmonella Newport. The raw, products including ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018 to Sept. 7, 2018. To date, eight case-patients have provided receipts or shopper card numbers, which have enabled product traceback investigations. FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state public health and agriculture partners have now determined that raw ground beef was the probable source of the reported illnesses. Traceback has identified JBS as the common supplier of the ground beef products. The epidemiological investigation has identified 57 case-patients from 16 states with illness onset dates ranging from August 5 to September 6, 2018. FSIS will continue to work with public health partners and will provide updated information should it become available. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-085-2018-release
