Pork Salami Products Recalled for Foreign Materials, Specifically Metal Shavings

The USDA has announced that Santa Fe Importers on California is recalling about 143 pounds of pork salami products that may be contaminated with foreign material. Metal shavings were found in some of the products. That produces a choking hazard, and people could be injured if they eat this product. No injuries or issues have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

These pork salami items were produced on August 3, 2017. The recalled product is 3.5 to 4.0-pound random weight plastic wrapped packages of “MARISA PREMIUM QUALITY GENOA SALAMI ITALIAN BRAND,” with a packaging date of Sept. 14, 2017 and a lot code of 257-100161 in the upper right hand corner. The products have the establishment number “EST. 4118” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to retail locations in California.

The company received a complaint about the metal shavings from a retina customer. They notified the USDA-FSIS on December 11, 2017.

If you bought this item, do not eat it. Throw it away in a double bagged or securely wrapped package in a secure garbage can, or take the salami back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

The USDA conducts retail effectiveness checks to make sure that firms that are recalling products notify their customers of the recall. Public officials also make sure that the product is not longer available for sale on store shelves.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the virtual representative at AskKaren.gov. Or you can call the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-674-6854 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday.
