- Beef Products Recalled Due to Outbreak of Salmonella
October 4, 2018
More than 6.5 million pounds of raw beef products has been recalled today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) due to an outbreak of salmonella.
The recall was issued after JBS Tolleson Inc., an Arizona-based meat processing plant, was identified as the common supplier of beef products found in reported salmonella outbreak cases.
From August 5 to September 6, there have been 57 patients across 16 different states that have gotten sick with salmonella. Health care officials were first informed last month of an outbreak after eight patients helped initially identify the source of the outbreak.
People affected by salmonella can have a high fever, abdominal cramps, severe diarrhea and dehydration. These symptoms usually develop within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated products. While the majority of people can recover after a week, more severe cases require hospitalization due to weakened immune systems commonly in young children and elderly adults.
Consumers who purchased these products are advised not to eat them and should be thrown away or returned. The recalled beef products were found to be packaged between July 26 and September 7.

All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
