Beef Products Recalled Due to Outbreak of Salmonella
October 4, 2018
More than 6.5 million pounds of raw beef products has been recalled today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) due to an outbreak of salmonella.
The recall was issued after JBS Tolleson Inc., an Arizona-based meat processing plant, was identified as the common supplier of beef products found in reported salmonella outbreak cases.
From August 5 to September 6, there have been 57 patients across 16 different states that have gotten sick with salmonella. Health care officials were first informed last month of an outbreak after eight patients helped initially identify the source of the outbreak.
People affected by salmonella can have a high fever, abdominal cramps, severe diarrhea and dehydration. These symptoms usually develop within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated products. While the majority of people can recover after a week, more severe cases require hospitalization due to weakened immune systems commonly in young children and elderly adults.
Consumers who purchased these products are advised not to eat them and should be thrown away or returned. The recalled beef products were found to be packaged between July 26 and September 7.

Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
