The Michigan food poisoning attorneys are warning all Michigan residents who have shopped at either Gab Halal Foods in Troy or Jouni Meats Inc. in Sterling Heights to check their freezers for contaminated meat, as both retail stores have been linked to nine instances of salmonella food poisoning. In fact, six out of the nine people infected with salmonella contamination are currently hospitalized.
Both retail stores have recalled the meat that may be contaminated with a strain of salmonella causing individuals to become food borne ill. Gab Halal recalled about 550 pounds of ground beef on Friday. Their recall included all ground beef sold between December 4 and December 10 wrapped in clear plastic without a label.
Jouni Meats recalled about 500 pounds of meat on Thursday. Their recall included all beef sold in various size packages between December 4 and December 9 without a label. It is strongly recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture that any meat purchased from either of those retail stores in that time frame should be thrown out.
Customers of the stores with questions should contact the owners. For Jouni Meats contact Khalil Jouni at 586-274-0670. For Gab Halal Food, contact Robert M Berry at 248-879-0927.
