Piller’s Fine Foods of Waterloo is recalling about 1,076 pounds of ready-to-eat salami and speck products that may be adulterated with Salmonella, says the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
During its sampling and testing of imports, it discovered the food-poisoning bacteria.
There has been no word of any problems from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
The ready-to-eat speck prosciutto was produced on Sept. 22 and the salami items on Oct. 12.
“The products subject to recall are vacuum-sealed random weight plastic packages containing “Black Kassel Piller’s Dry Aged D’Amour Salami” with Best Before date of May 12, 2018, and vacuum-sealed random weight plastic packages containing “Black Kassel Piller’s Dry Aged Speck Smoked Prosciutto” with Best Before date of May 12, 2018,” says the U.S. government.
These items were shipped to distribution centers in California, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and New York.
Piller’s is owned by Standard Brands of Vancouver which owns a number of meat-industry plants in the United States and Canada.
