JBS-owned brand recalls 12M pounds of beef

TOLLESON, ARIZ. — JBS Tolleson Inc., an Arizona brand owned by JBS USA, is recalling 12 million pounds of ground beef due to potential salmonella contamination, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service advisory released Tuesday.

Greeley-headquartered JBS is the country’s largest beef processor.

The raw, non-intact beef items, including ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26 to Sept. 7 and show “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection, the advisory said.

The beef was shipped to retail outlets and institutions across the country.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers,” the advisory said. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

This recall comes comes just a week after a Utah-based JBS brand recalled nearly 100,000 pounds of beef because it was potentially contaminated with E. coli.
