The USDA is recalling another 5.1 million pounds of raw beef products, expanding a previous recall to more than 12 million pounds.

The beef, produced and packaged by JBS Tolleson Inc. between July 26 and Sept. 7, has been linked to an outbreak of salmonella that has been diagnosed in 246 people in 25 states as of Nov. 15. Fifty-nine people have been hospitalized with no deaths reported.

The USDA warned consumers to throw out the recalled beef or return it to the store. The CDC suggests washing hands and anything that came into contact with raw meat with soap and water.
