The 12.1 million pounds of potentially contaminated raw beef products were produced between July 26 and Sept. 7, 2018, by JBS USA at its JBS Tolleson, Inc., processing plant in Tolleson, Arizona, FSIS said.

The agency “is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers,” it said in the new recall notice. “These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

The recalled meat was distributed to Walmart and Sam’s Club in dozens of states, and sold under numerous brand names including Kroger, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef and Gourmet Burger.

Most people infected with salmonella bacteria develop diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps within 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most people recover from the illness, which usually lasts 4 to 7 days without treatment.
