WASHINGTON– A Salt Lake City facility run by Creminelli Fine Meats announced on June 28 that it recalled approximately 4,207 lbs of ready-to-eat (RTE) parmesan salami sticks due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The problem was discovered by inspection personnel during a routine label verification review. Egg white lysozyme, a component of the parmesan cheese ingredient, was not declared on the final product label.
The RTE salami sticks with parmesan items were packaged on various dates from October 26, 2021, through April 26, 2022.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 2.6-oz. plastic pouches containing “CREMINELLI FINE MEATS salami minis UNCURED ITALIAN SALAMI PARMESAN” with “BEST BY” dates from 06/18/22 through 12/09/22.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST34644” stamped on the back of the product packaging next to the best by date.
These items were shipped to retail locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts and Utah, and sold through internet sales nationwide.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
