Federal health officials say at least 16 people in five states have been sickened by salmonella food poisoning linked to a Michigan store.

Jouni Meats, Inc., a Sterling Heights, Mich. retail store, is recalling approximately 500 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with a strain of Salmonella Typhimurium, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

No one has died, however eight people have been hospitalized.

The majority of the illnesses have been reported in Michigan, however a few cases were scattered in Arizona, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.

These products were produced between Dec. 4, 2012, and Dec. 9, 2012, and distributed to a restaurant in Macomb County, Mich., and sold directly to consumers at Jouni Meats, Inc. The products were sold without a label.
