The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is releasing a public health alert regarding possible Salmonella infections linked to ready-to-eat (RTE) charcuterie meat products, specifically the Busseto brand Charcuterie Sampler and the Fratelli Beretta brand Antipasto Gran Beretta.

Antipasto Gran Beretta, a Fratelli Beretta brand, was available at Costco in a 24-oz twin-pack (two 12-oz trays). Sam's Club carried an 18-oz twin-pack (two 9-oz trays) of the Busseto brand Charcuterie Sampler.

Each product's lot code has the potential to be tainted. Sam's Club and Costco are no longer carrying the products for sale.

The establishment numbers "EST. 7543B" and/or "EST. #47967" are either printed on the packaging or included inside the USDA mark of inspection for the products in question. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Food Safety Alert has photographs of labels.

Investigating a multistate outbreak of 47 Salmonella infections in 22 states with onset dates spanning from November 20, 2023, to January 1, 2024, FSIS has been collaborating with the CDC and state public health partners.

The state of Minnesota discovered the outbreak strain in an unopened Busseto brand charcuterie sampler during the course of the ongoing outbreak investigation. This discovery prompted the recall of item 01-2024 on January 3, 2024. FSIS will carry out the inquiry and disseminate any fresh data that becomes accessible.

One of the most prevalent bacterial foodborne infections, salmonellosis, can be contracted by consuming food infected with Salmonella. Within six hours to six days of consuming the infected foodstuff, diarrhea, cramping in the abdomen, and fever are the most typical signs of salmonellosis.

The sickness often lasts four to seven days. Most people heal on their own, without medical intervention. On the other hand, certain patients may require hospitalization due to the severity of their diarrhea. Severe sickness is more common in older adults, babies, and people with compromised immune systems.

Anyone who is worried about a medical condition should speak with their doctor.

The possibility that any product is in customers' refrigerators worries FSIS. It is recommended that consumers who have purchased these products not use them. You should either return these items to the store where you bought them or toss them away.

Media with questions regarding the public health alert can contact Marco Lastrico, Public Relations, Busseto Foods, at 917-634-1685 or m.lastrico@barabinousa.com. Consumers with questions regarding the public health alert can contact the Busseto Recall Hotline at 866-552-4916.

Consumers with food safety questions can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-MPHotline (888-674-6854) or send a question via email to MPHotline@usda.gov. For consumers that need to report a problem with a meat, poultry, or egg product, the online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at https://foodcomplaint.fsis.usda.gov/eCCF/.
