Recalled Sam’s Club Charcuterie Meats Linked To Multistate Salmonella Outbreak

More than 11,000 pounds of ready-to-eat charcuterie meats have been recalled after they were linked to the same strain of salmonella responsible for two dozen illnesses.

Federal health officials have linked a multistate salmonella food poisoning outbreak to multiple precooked charcuterie meat products sold by Sam’s Club.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is currently tracking a salmonella outbreak that has sickened at least 24 people across 14 states, including five reports of consumers being hospitalized. The outbreak resulted in a Busseto Foods charcuterie meat products recall issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on January 3, after testing revealed it carried the same strain of salmonella linked to the illnesses.

Salmonella food poisoning may result in diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, which typically lasts between four and seven days. However, in rare circumstances the infection can even spread throughout the blood stream and cause arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

Among individuals with a weakened immune system, such as the elderly, children or pregnant women, the illness can pose a much greater risk and may lead to death or stillbirth if left untreated. In rare circumstances, the infection can even spread throughout the blood stream and cause arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.

Charcuterie Meat Products Recall

The FSIS indicates the problem was discovered when the Minnesota Department of Agriculture reported that samples of the meat tested positive for salmonella.

“FSIS is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state public health partners to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella,” the agency reported. “Minnesota collected unopened ready-to-eat charcuterie sample products as part of the investigation. The product tested positive for Salmonella.”

The FSIS and CDC report that the investigation into the outbreak is ongoing.

The recall includes 18oz. plastic tray packages of ‘’Buesseto Foods Charcuterie Sampler Prosciutto, Sweet Soppressata, and Dry Coppa’’ with Lot Code L075330300. The affected products contain a ‘’Use-by date’’ of April 27, 2024 and were shipped to Sam’s Club Distribution Centers in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The products were sold in twin packs of 9 ounce packages, affecting about 11,097 pounds of meat. They were manufactured by Fratelli Beretta USA, Inc. of New Jersey.

The CDC and FSIS are instructing all customers and retailers to dispose of the recalled products and to thoroughly disinfect any container, surface areas or utensils the products may have come in direct contact with to prevent the spread of salmonella.

Consumers with questions regarding the recalled products can call the Busseto Recall Hotline at 866-552-4916.
