Officials Recall Pepper-Coated Salame Products

“Daniele, Inc. Voluntarily Recalls Pepper-Coated Salame Products”

os Angeles County health officials are warning customers to check their kitchens for pepper-coated salame products that may be tainted with salmonella.

Over 1 million pounds of the ready-to-eat products made by Rhode Island-based Daniele International Inc. that are distributed nationwide have been recalled.

“Once we learned of the recall, public health immediately reached out to food retailers throughout the county,” said Dr. Jonathan Fielding, director of public health. “All of the retail food chains we contacted were aware of the recall and had removed the affected product from their shelves.”

“Consumers should check their own refrigerator or freezer shelves for recalled products,” Fielding said.

A multi-state outbreak of salmonella illness alerted the U.S. Department of Agriculture to the potential contamination.

6 cases have been confirmed in the Los Angeles County area alone. One of those consumers was hospitalized.
