It’s been only a little over two months since the last major beef recall, and while the pathogens have changed, the game is the same. Several people fell ill, causing an investigation:

While reports of illnesses have come from nine states, the majority of those affected were in Colorado – with ground beef pin-pointed as the most likely cause for the 21 people sickened in the state, said the CDPHE.

The meat has been traced to a company called Beef Packers, Inc of California. Perhaps a starling difference with this recall is that this strain of Salmonella, Salmonella Newport, is actually antibiotic resistant.

Here is a link to a detailed article on FoodProductionDaily.com:

Massive beef recall linked to antibiotic-resistant salmonella outbreak.

Details on the affected lots of meat can be found at this link to the USDA’s site.
