Another recall got issued, but not for any pharmaceutical products, but on food. JBS Tolleson, Inc. issued an expansion recall after the first one in October 2018, and for the same reason. They are recalling over 5.1 million pounds of raw beef products that may be tainted by salmonella.


According to the FSIS, the beef got produced and packaged between July 26 and September 7. In total, over 12 million pounds of “non-intact raw beef products” already got recalled and is linked to an outbreak of salmonella that already caused 246 people to become ill in 25 states.

Products on recall had been distributed throughout the country and include brands like Cedar River Farms, Kroger, Grass Run Farms and JBS generic.


56 people have been hospitalized to date but no deaths have been reported. Salmonella symptoms usually set in 12 to 72 hours after consuming the contaminated food.

These symptoms can include fever, abdominal cramps, diarrhea and can last between four to seven days. Generally, hospitalization is not required, but people who experience persistent diarrhea may need to be hospitalized.

The FDA recently issued another expansion recall on dog food. Dog owners are being asked to check the labels on their dog’s dry food. Several dogs have exhibited signs of poisoning due to toxic levels of vitamin D found in several brands of dry food.
