Per the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the meat producer JBS Tolleson Inc. has announced the recall over 6,000,0000 pounds (about thirteen thousand cows worth) of "various raw, non-intact beef products" (ground beef) due to salmonella contamination.
Roughly 6.9 million pounds of raw beef are being recalled after being linked to a salmonella outbreak. Return it to the store or throw it away in a secure garbage can. Later that day, he began to experience symptoms of severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, and nausea. According to the Centers For Disease and Control, salmonella still kills around 450 people on an annual basis. Once the salmonella contaminated food has been consumed by the person, it starts putting its effects on the person within 12 to 72 hours of consumption.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
"Yesterday, out of an abundance of caution, JBS USA initiated a voluntary recall of ground beef products from our Tolleson, Ariz., beef production facility due to the potential presence of Salmonella", JBS USA spokeswoman Misty Barnes wrote in an email.
The raw beef was shipped nationwide to retail locations.
The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

Traceback then identified JBS Tolleson as the common supplier of the ground beef products, the agency said. Several patients ate ground beef at the same events or purchased ground beef from the same grocery store chains.
Salmonella is one of the most common foodborne illnesses in the US, but the pathogen is more often associated with poultry, eggs or produce than beef. Thirty-six (92%) of 39 people interviewed reported eating ground beef at home.
