An October recall of ground beef over Salmonella concerns increased Tuesday to include an additional 5 million pounds of product, the USDA announced. It brings the total to more than 12 million pounds.
The recall of beef supplied from JBS Tolleson of Tolleson, Ariz., has been linked to 246 people getting sick in 26 states.
The USDA now says 12,093,271 pounds of non-intact raw beef products have been recalled. The beef was shipped nationwide. People are urged to check their freezers to make sure they don't have the recalled meat.
Hundreds of products are on the list. The USDA said the meat was packaged between July 26 and Sept. 7. They have an establishment number "EST. 267" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
