On October 4, a company from Arizona, JBS Tolleson, Inc. recalled more than 6.5 million pounds of various raw, non-intact beef products that had been shipped nationwide. The recall was due to the beef possibly being contaminated with Salmonella Newport.
Today, the recall was reissued to expand on the original recall which now includes an additional 5,156,076 pounds of raw beef products. The products in this recall were packaged and produced from July 26, 2018 – September 7, 2018.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
