Recall: Salami sold at Costco

Photo from Daniele, Inc. announced Jan. 23 a voluntary recall of approximately 1.24 million pounds of pepper-coated salami because of possible concerns of salmonella. The company recalled the product “after officials conducting a months-long, multistate investigation of a salmonella outbreak compared shopping receipts of those who got sick,” according to a Jan. 23 Associated Press story. The outbreak sickened 184 people in 38 states since July. The AP story reported that “public health investigators in Washinton state found that many of the state’s 14 residents who got sick shopped at the warehouse retailer Costco.” Costco has listed Daniele, Inc.’s press release on its page of product notices. The Rhode Island-based meat company stated in a Jan. 23 press release that “state and federal health officials have been unable to confirm a direct link between the illnesses and any Daniele product.” However the company is taking the aggressive step of recalling the salami in the event that further evidence points to Daniele, Inc. as the cause of the outbreak. Daniele, Inc. said that any consumer having problems with the following products should contact Daniele, Inc. at (888) 345-4160 for a full refund at the point of purchase:
