The affected products have an establishment number of "EST".

The recalled beef was produced and packaged between July 26 and September 7, according to the service. These items were shipped to a retail locations and institutions nationwide.

The recalled beef is linked to an outbreak of salmonella that, as of November 15, has caused 246 people to become sick in 25 states, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Given that the products may have been purchased as far back as July, FSIS advised consumers to check the information on meat in their freezers. "These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase", the agency said in announcing the recall. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. Though most people recover without treatment, older adults and young children may require hospitalization.

In addition, "only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160°F".
