JBS Tolleson, Inc., a Tolleson, Ariz. establishment, is recalling approximately 12,093,271 pounds of non-intact raw beef products that may be contaminated with salmonella - an additional 5.1 million pounds added to the standing recall.
The raw, non-intact beef items, including ground beef, were packaged between July 26 to Sept. 7, 2018, and bear the establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped nationwide to retail locations and institutions.
Federal officials are concerned that some frozen product may be in consumers' freezers. The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, officials said. They also remind consumers to safely prepare raw beef and make sure it is properly cooked.
People concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
Consumers with questions about the recall should call the JBS USA Consumer Hotline at (800) 727-2333.
