Beef recalled after nationwide outbreak of salmonella

Sometimes, it seems like the food supply in Florida is constantly being recalled. There have been numerous recalls lately for romaine lettuce, chicken, pasta salad and many more food items. A major recall was just announced for raw beef, which can lead to a person's unexpected illness.

Hundreds of people across the United States have been sickened due to a salmonella outbreak. More than 2,500 tons of raw beef is being recalled after an initial recall of 3,500 tons of potentially contaminated beef. JBS Tolleson has issued the recall for the beef, which has been sold in many national retailers, including Sam's Club, Walmart and Laura's Lean. There have been at least 246 people who have been sickened by the beef.

Salmonella is one of the most common food-borne illness with over a million people becoming sick each year in the United States. Symptoms can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. It can be deadly for babies, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Federal officials are investigating the cause of the nationwide outbreak along with inspecting the meatpacking plant.

No one expects the food that they eat will make them sick. Food manufacturers have the obligation to make sure the food they produce is safe. When a manufacturer cuts corners, does not perform important inspections or engages in other activity that affects consumer's health, they need to be held accountable. It is important to hold these companies accountable for their mistakes so that they don't harm anyone else.
