Daniele International, Inc., a Mapleville, R.I., firm is expanding its Jan. 23 recall of 1,240,000 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) varieties of Italian sausage products that may be contaminated with Salmonella by another 17,235 pounds of sausage products.
The recall was expanded as a result of a confirmed finding of Salmonella in an unopened salami product reported by the Illinois Department of Public Health. The product tested was not included in the previous recall but is similar to products bought by customers who later became sick in the Montevideo investigation. Product subject to the expanded recall may have been cross-contaminated with black pepper before it was packed. The company believes that black pepper is a possible source of Salmonella contamination.
The expanded recall involves packages of DANIELE HOT SOPRESSATA CALABRESE produced on 11/7/09, 12/16/09 and 12/18/09; packages of DANIELE SOPRESSATA CALABRESE produced on 12/16/09 and 12/18/09; and packages of BOARS HEAD BRAND HOT SOPRESSATA CALABRESE produced on 11/28/09, 12/9/09 and 12/14/09.
The products were distributed to retail establishments nationwide.
