The beef was sold at stores nationwide. According to the CDC's timeline, the last 22 people of the 246 hit with salmonella fell ill from September 30 through October 16. The agency fears more contaminated beef may be stored in Americans' freezers.
Older adults, children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions. These can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever that last between four and seven days.
In October, JBS announced plans to recall 6.9 million pounds of raw beef products due to salmonella concerns.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number "EST".
Most people recover from salmonella infections without treatment, health officials say. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.
The latest batch of offending meat was packaged between July 26 and September 7, according to the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The recall list and labels are available on the USDA site.
The USDA also reminded consumers to cook all ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. "Other cuts of beef should be cooked to a temperature of 145°F and allowed to rest for at least three minutes".
Salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations and 450 deaths in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact the JBS USA Consumer hotline at 800-727-2333.
