Take care with ground beef

First it was Romaine lettuce. Now it's ground beef.
The US Department of Agriculture has a nationwide beef recall due to salmonella contamination.
More than 12 million pounds of raw ground beef are being recalled.
Nearly 250 people in 26 states have fallen ill.
The USDA fears more contaminated beef may be stored in Americans’ freezers. 
Most people who contract salmonella recover without treatment.
The bacteria is dangerous for children, the elderly and people with weak immune systems. Symptoms develop between 12 to 72 hours and include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. They usually last 4 to 7 days.
The affected products are dated between July 26 and Sept. 7 by JBS Tolleson, an Arizona beef processing plant that ships nationwide. The specific products subject to recall are stamped with “EST. 267” within the USDA mark of inspection, the agency says. 
A list of affected product labels can be found on the USDA’s website and here.
