The USDA warns of dangers of recalled ground beef

A recent recall of ground beef produced by JBS Tolleson, Inc., just got bigger. The recall began in October, but the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) now urges consumers to check any ground beef in their freezers to see whether it is part of the recall.

In Alabama, the potentially tainted beef was sold at Sam’s Club, Kroger, Sprouts and Winn-Dixie. The USDA says, however, that this may not be a complete list of retailers. You should, therefore, check any frozen ground beef you have for the following information on the package:

  • EST. 267 inside the USDA inspection mark (although it may appear in other places)
  • Package dates from July 26 – September 7, 2018

If you have ground beef with these specifications, throw it away or return it to the store.

Over 12 million pounds of recalled raw beef may cause serious illness

The concern in this recall is that the ground beef may cause Salmonella Newport, which is a type of food poisoning you can contract from raw meat. Salmonella is a bacterial foodborne illness that can cause fever, severe diarrhea and abdominal cramps for up to seven days. While many people get better on their own, some need medical treatment or hospitalization.

The very young and old, as well as people with weak immune systems, are at increased risk for severe cases of the illness. In these cases, there is a risk for dangerous dehydration from the diarrhea and/or vomiting.

Check your freezer today

Take care of yourself and your family by checking any frozen ground beef you have for the information listed above and discarding it if necessary. It is not worth taking a chance with your health and your loved ones’ health.

"They took a case that others would have stayed clear of.."
I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
