USDA-FSIS Announced that JBS Tolleson increases the amount of raw beef products recalled due to contamination with Salmonella Newport
Two months after the initial recall, of October 4, 2018, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today that JBS Tolleson, Inc., Tolleson, Arizona, is recalling approximately 12,093,271 pounds of non-intact raw beef products that may be contaminated with Salmonella Newport. This extension represents an additional 5,156,076 pounds of raw beef products, which were produced and packed from July 26, 2018, to Sept. 7, 2018. There might be a small value in this late recall, however, the FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide. Epidemiological investigation has identified 246 confirmed case-patients from 26 states related to the recall (illness onset dates ranging from July 26 to September 7, 2018). JBS Tolleson has identified three case-patients related to 267 ground beef products that were not part of the October 4, 2018 recall. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-085-2018-EXP-release?permalink=https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-085-2018-EXP-release
