More Raw Beef Recalled Due to Salmonella: USDA

More raw beef in the United States has been recalled due to possible salmonella contamination, the Department of Agriculture says.

A unit of Brazil’s JBS is recalling more than 12 million pounds of raw beef that was shipped around the U.S. In October, JBS Tolleson in Arizona recalled about 7 million pounds of beef, the Associated Press reported.

To date, 246 illnesses have been reported, according to the USDA.

The most recent recall covers products with the USDA inspection number “EST. 267” that were packaged between late July and September. The agency said any of the recalled products still in people’s freezers should be thrown away, the AP reported.

Salmonella can occur in raw poultry and meat, which needs to be properly handled and cooked, the USDA said. Cooking kills salmonella.
