The agency posted a 33-page list of the recalled items, which were shipped to retail locations and institutions across the country.

JBS Tolleson says is pulling 6.5 million pounds of "various raw, non-intact beef products".

The salmonella outbreak has sickened at least 57 people in 16 states, the Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Thursday. But since the company's beef products are sold under various brand names in the USA, consumers may not realize they're buying JBS products. The products "should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase". That said, some people with severe diarrhea sometimes require hospitalization, and infants, adults over age 65, and people with weakened immune systems face a higher risk for developing severe illness from salmonella.

Fourteen patients from this outbreak have been hospitalized, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Salmonella has been responsible for some of the most widespread food-poisoning outbreaks in recent U.S. history.

The consulate said it was working with the Turkish government to "uncover the circumstances" of his disappearance. The crown prince insisted that the kingdom has always paid for armaments from the US.

Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. Sixty-one percent are male.

The USDA further notes that eating foods contaminated with salmonellabacteria can lead to salmonellosis, which is the most common food-borne illness.

Consumers who have ground beef in their homes labeled with the establishment number "EST". 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.

If you or a family member became ill with a Salmonella infection, including Reactive Arthritis or Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), after consuming food and you're interested in pursuing a legal claim, contact the Marler Clark Salmonella attorneys for a free case evaluation.
