More than 6.5 million pounds of beef products are being recalled nationwide due to a salmonella outbreak, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The beef, which was produced by JBS Tolleson, includes “various raw, non-intact beef products,” the USDA said in a press release issued Thursday. The beef was packaged on dates ranging from July 26 to Sept. 7 of this year and has establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection. It was sold under the brand names Walmart, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart, and JBS Generic. Health officials have identified JBS Tolleson as the “probable source” of 57 cases of salmonella illnesses that were reported in 16 states between Aug. 5 and Sept. 6.
