Another day, another recall. It seems like every other day there is another product that is being pulled from retailers' shelves due to either contamination, dangerous medication mislabeling, or safety risks.
About 6,912,875 pounds of raw beef products are being recalled all across the United States due to potential salmonella contamination, the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported, according to "Fox Business."
Federal and state health officials are warning consumers about this recall and are extremely concerned that some buyers may have this product stored away in their freezers. Officials are asking consumers to check their homes of this product as salmonella infections can pose dangerous symptoms.
While most healthy people who are exposed to salmonella may not experience any symptoms, other's may. Symptoms could include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, chills, blood in stool, and headaches, according to the "Mayo Clinic." In some cases, life-threatening complications may occur.
Arizona establishment, JBS Tolleson Inc., has recalled 6,912,875 pounds of numerous raw, non-intact beef products due to the potential contamination of salmonella, according to FSIS.
The recalled beef items were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018, to September 7, 2018. Among the long list, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Comnor Perfect Choice, Grass Run Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart, Gourmet Burger, and JBS Generic are all included.
The recalled products bear the establishment number "EST. 267" which is inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped nationwide.
According to "USA Today", there have been 57 people who have gotten sick after consuming one of these products.
Consumers who have purchased these products are asked not to consume them, and they should be discarded immediately or returned to the place of purchase.
