A meat company has issued a product recall for 1.24 million pounds of pepper-coated salami on Saturday. The product recall comes after a lengthy multistate investigation of a salmonella outbreak. Interestingly, the investigation included comparing shopping receipts of those people who got food poisoning. The outbreak has sickened 184 people in 38 states. Eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a potentially life threatening bacterial foodborne illness. The recalling company has set up a hot line for consumers or distributors – (888) 345-4160.
