5.1 million pounds of raw beef recalled according to USDA

The USDA has reported that more than 5.1 million pounds of raw beef products that may be tainted with salmonella has been recalled by JBS Tolleson, Inc. 

The recalled beef was produced and packaged between July 26 and September 7 according to FSIS. The products have been distributed nationwide and include the brands Kroger, Cedar River Farms, Grass Run Farms and JBS generic among others.

This is an expansion of a recall that was first issued in October for the same reason.

The recalled beef is linked to an outbreak of salmonella that, as of November 15, has caused 246 people to become sick in 25 states, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No deaths have been reported but 56 people have been hospitalized.
