We have known for some time now that Daniele Inc.’s recalled salami products, and pepper sold by Overseas Spice Company and Wholesome Spice, were contaminated with more than one strain of Salmonella. We have also known for some time that the strains involved, or at least two of them, are Montevideo and Senftenberg. But who knew that some of the recalled, contaminated Salami products were contaminated with BOTH strains of Salmonella?
Lee Hanks, our client from Missouri who filed the second suit nationally linked to this outbreak, found out the hard way. Two of the salamis in a variety pack (hot calabrese and hot capocollo) that he purchased from a Missouri Costco store tested positive for both strains of the bacteria. One wonders what discovery will show regarding the extent of contamination of the recalled salami products, and the black pepper used to make it.
