An initial recall that was issued on October 4 was expanded this week to include 5 million more pounds of raw beef products.

JBS Tolleson, Inc.is recalling more than 5.1 million pounds of raw beef products that may be tainted with salmonella, the USDA's FSIS said Tuesday.

The products were packaged between late July and September.

Consumers should discard or return any recalled beef.

The USDA says 250 people have been sickened.

He added: "Unless there is clarity on these questions it is simply not possible for the Government to know how to comply with the motion".

The beef is linked to a salmonella outbreak that has caused illnesses in 246 people from 26 states, the USDA said.

FSIS continued investigating the possible salmonella contamination after trace-back investigations identified the source of three cases to be JBS Tolleson Inc., EST. Only three-pound packages will a sell by date of September 13 were sold at Kroger stores in MI.

The CDC warns the recall has not been finalized and customers should still watch out for symptoms of infection, and get rid of any beef with that number on it. People who may be sick after eating the recalled products should contact a health-care provider.

When JBS launched its initial recall on October 4 on the USDA's website, there were 54 people in 12 states who had been confirmed with infections from Salmonella Newport, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's outbreak announcement, which was also posted on October 4. The Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned these products may be in freezers, and urges they be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

They said no raw poultry or meat is sterile so officials recommend always cooking the meat to a safe internal temperature as the cooking process kills the salmonella. Others, though, may need to be hospitalized. Most people recover without treatment in less than a week, but some may require hospitalization for dehydration.
