Raw Beef Products Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella Newport Contamination

  • Food and Health, Millions of pounds of ground beef recalled

A US unit of Brazil's JBS SA is recalling 6.5 million pounds of beef products processed through an Arizona plant because the meat might be contaminated with salmonella, USA government officials said on Thursday.

Any consumers with ground beef in their refrigerators or freezers should check the product for establishment number "EST. 267" found inside the USDA mark of inspection on the packaging label.

Preventing recalls is a far better strategy than coping with one after the fact, so beef processors observing the JBS Tolleson situation may want to double-check to make sure their food safety procedures are in order, pathogen testing is up to date and staff members are adequately trained to spot potential problems.

FSIS said investigators were able to link the beef products to outbreak patients with store receipts. According to a Harris Interactive poll, 55% of consumers said they would temporarily move to another brand after a recall, about 15% would never buy the recalled product and 21% would refuse to buy any brand made by that manufacturer. "These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase", the agency said in announcing the recall. Later that day, he began to experience symptoms of severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, and nausea.


Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses.

The USDA released a list of hundreds of products that are subject to the recall. Don't eat raw or undercooked ground beef. The illness typically lasts between four and seven days, and most people recover without medical treatment.

Children younger than 5 years, adults older than 65 years, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. And an outbreak in 2009 linked to a peanut factory sickened more than 500 people, eight of whom died. No deaths have been reported due to this particular outbreak, but vigilance is really the only way to assure that it doesn't affect you or your family. FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state public health and agriculture partners have now determined that raw ground beef was the probable source of the reported illnesses.
