WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBN) – An undetermined amount of ready-to-eat meat charcuterie products are being recalled, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
According to an announcement from the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, Fratelli Beretta USA, Inc., is recalling some RTE meat charcuterie products containing possibly under-processed coppa, an Italian, Swiss or French pork cold cut. The FSIS said this could have resulted in possible contamination with foodborne pathogens.
The FSIS said the products, which were shipped nationwide, have the establishment number “EST. M47967 or M7543B.”
As part of an investigation into a multi-state salmonella outbreak, the FSIS, which is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, determined that the recalled product may be under-processed. An investigation is ongoing to determine if products that tested positive for salmonella are related to the outbreak.
On Jan. 3, the Mount Olive, N.J., company recalled charcuterie products related to possible salmonella contamination followed by an FSIS public health alert issued on Jan. 18 related to more charcuterie products.
The FSIS said salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever six hours to six days after eating a contaminated product. Consumers are urged not to eat them and to throw away or return them to their place of purchase.
Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact the Busseto Recall Hotline at 866-552-4916.
