Contaminated charcuterie meat products.
As cases of salmonella infections in recalled charcuterie meats doubled, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded its warning to new ones. Food safety alert Thursday.
A total of 47 cases, including 10 hospitals, have been reported in 22 states including Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Oregon. Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.
That's nearly double the number of cases in the last update on January 5, which saw 24 cases in 14 states and five hospitalizations.
The CDC warns that the actual number of cases may be higher and may be in other states.
This warning is now being extended beyond a limited number of Busseto Brand Charcuterie Sampler.
The CDC now says not to eat, serve, or sell the following (both sold in double packs):
• Busseto brand charcuterie model sold at Sam's Club
• Fratelli Beretta brand Antipasto Gran Beretta sold at Costco
While the investigation is ongoing, people should throw away any of these products and use hot, soapy water or the dishwasher to clean dishes and containers that may have touched the recalled product, the CDC says.
It is still being determined whether any additional product will be contaminated.
Fratelli Beretta earlier this month recalled more than 11,000 pounds of charcuterie meat products, but only one specific lot code.
Diarrhea and a fever of 102 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, three or more days of diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, vomiting, vomiting that prevents fluid retention, or symptoms of dehydration: People should call a health care provider if they experience symptoms such as lack of urination, dryness. Dizziness in mouth and throat or when standing up.
Salmonella symptoms usually begin six hours to six days after a person ingests the bacteria, and most people recover in four to seven days without treatment. But young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems can become seriously ill.
