Salmonella Outbreak Leads To Ground Beef Recall
(CNN) – Federal health officials are reporting a salmonella outbreak linked to ground beef.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 16 people got sick from salmonella in ground beef in five states.
Half of the people were hospitalized, but there are no reports of deaths.
The USDA reports, “These products were produced between Dec. 4, 2012, and Dec. 9, 2012, and distributed to a restaurant in Macomb County, Mich., and sold directly to consumers at Jouni Meats, Inc. These products were sold without a label.”
The CDC named two companies as the likely sources of the contaminated meat.
Those companies recalled more than 1,000 pounds of ground beef last week.
The CDC recommends people do not eat raw or undercooked ground beef.
