Pepper-Crusted Salami Recall Issued Following to Salmonella Outbreak

Approximately 1.24 million pounds of pepper-coated salami/salame and other Italian sausage products have been recalled because they may be contaminated with a strain of salmonella linked to cases of food poisoning in 38 states.

The pepper-crusted salami recall was announced on Friday by The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service for several varieties of ready-to-eat cured meats distributed by Daniele International, Inc. Samples of the pepper salami have tested positive for Salmonella bacteria, and similar products were eaten by many customers who have reportedly suffered food poisoning symptoms caused by the Salmonella Montevideo strain of the bacteria.

A multi-state Salmonella Montevideo outbreak has sickened 184 people, including at least 35 cases that required hospitalization. Many of the illnesses reportedly involved individuals who purchased salami sold at Costco

AT&T Data Breach Impacts Millions of Customers

More than 73 million customers of AT&T may have had their names, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers and other information released on the dark web due to a massive AT&T data breach. Lawsuits are being pursued to obtain financial compensation.

Salmonella poisoning can cause symptoms such as abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloody diarrhea and fever. While symptoms tend to resolve within a few days or weeks for most healthy adults, the elderly, young children and those with weakened immune systems may be more susceptible to severe, and potentially life-threatening, infections.

The recall includes various packages of salami / salame coated with coarse black pepper, or salami packaged with other cured meats that are crusted with pepper. At this time, it is unknown whether it is the meat or the pepper that may be contaminated with salmonella.
