On September 5, 2018, US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) was notified of an investigation of Salmonella Newport illnesses with reported consumption of several different FSIS-regulated products by case-patients. The first store receipt potentially linking the purchase of FSIS-regulated product to a case-patient was received on September 19, 2018; FSIS was then able to begin traceback of ground beef products. To date, eight case-patients have provided receipts or shopper card numbers, which have enabled product traceback investigations.

After FSIS Recall 085-201, issued on October 4, 2018, US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”), CDC, and state public health and agriculture partners continued to investigate the outbreak of Salmonella Newport illnesses. The epidemiological investigation has identified 246 confirmed case-patients from 25 states with illness onset dates ranging from August 5, 2018 to October 16, 2018.

An additional sixteen (16) case-patients have provided receipts or shopper card numbers for the product traceback investigations. Specific traceback for three (3) case-patients have identified JBS Tolleson, Inc., EST. 267 ground beef products that were not part of the October 4, 2018 recall. FSIS will continue to work with public health partners and provide updated information should it become available.

The USDA’s FSIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), and state public health and agriculture partners have now determined that Raw Ground Beef was the probable source of the reported illnesses. Traceback has identified JBS as the common supplier of the Ground Beef products. The epidemiological investigation has identified fifty-seven (57) case-patients from sixteen (16) states with illness onset dates ranging from August 5 to September 6, 2018. FSIS will continue to work with public health partners and will provide updated information should it become available.
