Arizona company recalls beef that's sickened 57 people in US

Millions of pounds of beef have been recalled due to a salmonella outbreak.

Hundreds of beef products are part of the recall, including products sold under the Walmart brand.

The products, identified as being supplied from JBS Tolleson of Tolleson, Ariz., are raw, "non-intact" beef items including ground beef that were shipped nationwide.

"Salmonella can cause serious illness, so it is critical that everyone take precautions by not eating the recalled meat and thoroughly cooking all beef products", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. The first store receipt potentially linking the purchase of FSIS-regulated product to a case-patient was received on 19 September; FSIS was then able to begin traceback of ground beef products. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. If you do have recalled beef in your fridge or freezer, investigators say to throw it out or return to the store you bought it from.

At least 57 people across 16 states have gotten sick due to the outbreak, according to the USDA report released Thursday.

Food safety lawyer Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients sickened after eating contaminated ground beef, said, "No one should get sick because they chose to buy ground beef from a grocery store". Mr. Rozich continues to recover from his Salmonella infection. Retailers carrying any recalled products would be smart to pull them off the shelf immediately and advise consumers about it through phone calls, text messages and social media outlets.

Children under the age of 5, adults over the age of 65, and anyone with a weakened immune system are especially at risk of developing severe complications from Salmonella infections.

Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. Thirty-one percent of patients have been hospitalized. Of 45 people with information available, 14 (31%) have been hospitalized. In that announcement, once that issue was highlighted by JBS the common suppliers of grounded beef were found to be as a probable source of the suspected salmonella contamination in the meat.
