Story at-a-glance -

  • Salmonella Newport is strongly linked to dairy cows, which are routinely sold for meat when their milk production wanes. One reason for declining milk production, besides age, is subclinical Salmonella infection, especially S. Newport infection
  • October 4, 2018, the world’s largest meatpacker, JBS Tolleson, recalled more than 6.9 million pounds of raw beef due to possible contamination with Salmonella Newport
  • Products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection
  • A single hamburger patty can contain meat from more than 1,000 animals, so all you need is one sick animal to contaminate nearly unlimited amounts of meat, as it all runs through the same processing equipment and gets mixed together in gigantic batches
  • Unlike E.coli, Salmonella is not considered a hazardous adulterant in meat, and processors are not required to test for it. Any recall due to Salmonella contamination is strictly voluntary

Earlier this month, the world's largest meatpacker, JBS Tolleson, recalled more than 6.9 million pounds of raw beef processed in its Arizona facility due to possible contamination with Salmonella enterica of the serotype Newport, a more unusual strain of Salmonella. The recalled products were processed between July 26 and September 7, 2018.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), "The products subject to recall bear establishment number 'EST. 267' inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide." In all, the recall affects 49 different JBS product lines, including its grass fed beef sold under the Grass Run Farms name.
