Safeway Ground Beef 2007

Safeway markets in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and New Mexico sold contaminated ground beef. A rare, drug resistant, strain of Salmonella Newport was isolated from the ill. No recall was issued as the Food Safety and Inspection Service could not identify the specific "establishments, lots and products" that received the ground beef. An alert was issued, on December 21, that advised Safeway customers to refrain from eating ground beef that had been purchased between September 19 and November 5.
