RECALL: Ready-to-Eat Charcuterie Meat Products

  • Post category:Local / News

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has recalled some charcuterie meat products from Fratelli Beretta USA, Inc., because the food was potentially under-processed and could contain pathogens.

The ready-to-eat (RTE) meat charcuterie products containing Coppa may be under processed, which may have resulted in possible contamination with foodborne pathogens.

The RTE Coppa products have various best by dates. The products subject to the recall and the product labels can be seen HERE.

From the USDA:

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 6 hours to 6 days after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
