Salami Recall 2010

An ongoing Salmonella outbreak has triggered a massive Salami recall of about 1.2 million pounds of salami and other ready-to-eat sausages in Jan 2010. Rhode Island-based Daniele brand pepper-crusted salami has been identified as the source of the outbreak. No deaths have been reported, but more than 30 people have been hospitalized.

The recalled products are widely sold at groceries, warehouse stores and online at vendors like Costco, Walmart, Sam's Club, Amazon and other locations. Most products are sold under the Daniele brand name, but several items with the Boar's Head, Black Bear, or Dietz & Watson labels are also included.

Questions such as whether it was the meat or the pepper that was contaminated still remain unanswered. About 200 cases related to this outbreak have been reported in 38 states with 8 cases from Oregon and 14 from Washington state. Many of the 14 people shopped at Costco reportedly. Daniele Deli Selection’s Sweet Sopressa pepper coated salami outside of Rhode Island, tested positive for salmonella.

Salmonellosis information

Salmonellosis is an acute bacterial infection that can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, vomiting. The symptoms usually occur within a day or 3 days after consuming contaminated food. It lasts for 4-7 days and most people recover without any medication. In some cases, the infection can spread from the intestines to the blood stream sometimes leading to hospitalization and death. Consult a doctor immediately when you think you are infected with Salmonella bacteria or any food poisoning. Children, babies have a weaker immune system and are more likely to develop complications. Watch out for this news on Salami Recall 2010 due to Salmonella outbreak and choose your diet carefully.

Salami are dry and strongly seasoned sausages. Since they go through a long curing process, they get the intense flavour. The curing process is when the sausage matures in its skin. This process helps salami to be safe and ready to eat, despite being uncooked.

Traditionally, Salami is made from a mixture of minced beef, pork, wine, salt and various herbs and spices. Salami varies in size, shape, seasoning and curing process; well known examples include pepperoni, Spanish chorizo and French garlic sausage. Avoid salami that is dried out and pale. When buying pre-sliced salami from a deli counter be sure to ask whether it has been recently cut. Meat that has been sliced hours before will look dry and unappetising. Until the investigation of Salmonella bacteria is well understood and until the government issues a statement saying it is safe to consume uncooked meat such as salami, just stay away from them and especially your children must avoid consuming them.
