WASHINGTON (WCMH) — The USDA has expanded a recall on ground beef due to concerns of salmonella contamination.
According to the USDA, approximately more than 12 million pounds of non-intact raw beef products from JBS Tolleson, Inc. has been recalled because it may be contaminated with salmonella, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Tuesday.
This expands on an earlier recall issued in October.
The raw, non-intact beef items, including ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018 to Sept. 7, 2018.
The FSIS says nearly 250 people have been affected by the tainted beef.
