JBS Tolleson is recalling 6.9 million pounds of various raw, non-intact beef products that may be contaminated with salmonella.
The beef was packaged on various dates from July 26 to Sept. 7. The products bear establishment number EST. 267 inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) was first notified of a salmonella investigation on Sept. 5, after a series of patients reported falling ill after eating the product.
Eight case-patients have provided receipts or shopper card numbers which have enabled product traceback investigations. So far, 57 people from 16 states have fallen ill from the beef between the dates of Aug. 5 to Sept. 6.
