A Rhode Island meat company recalled 1.24 million pounds of pepper-coated salami, after officials conducting a months-long, multistate investigation of a salmonella outbreak compared shopping receipts of those who got sick.
The recall by Daniele International Inc. comes amid an outbreak that’s sickened 184 people in 38 states since July.
Daniele has been identified as the source of the ongoing outbreak by William Keene, a senior epidemiologist at the public health division in Oregon, where eight people have gotten sick.
In Washington, officials are monitoring the situation, said Tim Church, spokesman for the state Department of Health.
One person from Washington was hospitalized, but all have recovered, Church said.
“We know investigations have implicated salami nationally, but that’s really all we know. There’s more work that needs to be done on this,” Church said.
Eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a potentially life-threatening bacterial foodborne illness.
