More Salami Products Recalled, Salmonella Contamination To Blame

The US Department of Agriculture and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released an update today on their ongoing investigation of Rhode Island-based Daniele International. The CDC reports that they have found more salmonella contamination in salami products produced by Daniele International.

Daniele International will be recalling another 115,000 pounds of salami products, an expansion of a January 23rd recall of around 1.3 million pounds of salami.

The previous recalls were due to the discovery of salmonella in black pepper products while the expanded recall concerns a new suspicion of salmonella contamination in the crusted red pepper used to spice Italian sausage products.

Daniele International obtains their spices from Mincing Overseas Spice Company and Wholesome Spice.
