The products being recalled were packaged between July 26 and September 7.

As of Tuesday, 246 sicknesses in 26 states had been linked to the salmonella outbreak.

The products were sold nationwide and have the stamp "EST".

Comey makes deal over House subpoena, backs off legal fight
Goodlatte appeared on Fox News earlier on Sunday and said he expected Comey to "withdraw" his subpoena. Comey has received a subpoena from the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee before.

"Salmonella can cause serious illness, so it is critical that everyone take precautions by not eating the recalled meat and thoroughly cooking all beef products", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. No deaths have been reported, but 56 people have been hospitalized.

The USDA also reminded consumers to cook all ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Older adults, children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.

Salmonella symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Not all who eat infected meat will get sick, but they can pass the infection on to others. Other cuts of beef should be cooked to a temperature of 145 °F and allowed to rest for at least 3 minutes.

If the diarrhea is particularly severe or persists for days, the diner may need hospital care.
