Food recall for another salami, salmonella risk returns

The Ministry of Healthin its function of monitoring products that put health at risk, has recalled another product. It is a cured meat, which adds to the long list created recently. It is a liver salami.

The risks associated with consumption are once again high. It is no coincidence that in the note you can read the warning of I don't consume and, for supermarkets or sales points, non-sale. The recalled salami actually contains the bacterium salmonella.

Recall for liver salami: high risk of salmonella

With the note of 17 May the Ministry of Health (also present on thededicated app) decided on the recall of a salami. It is a salami with a particular and less common taste than the brand “Ciccarelli Salumificio”.

The manufacturer and identification mark of the establishment is Ciccarelli Salumificio di Ciccarelli Massimo e C. sns, specifically from the factory in via San Paolo 57, San Severino, Marche. To better identify the type of product under recall, you can check the accused batch and the manufacturer's brand: 121in the factory marked IT1674/L CE.

The salami, which has a white label with red writing, raised the alarm due to the presence of a bacterium. In particular, as we have already seen for Tuscan salami, it is the presence of salmonella to have triggered concern about the health risk of consumers. The recall, scheduled for May 17, 2024 for product with an expiration date within two months of the manufacturing date, comes with a warning.

The note reads: “The product it should not be marketed, must be removed from the sale. The product must be returned.”

Why the Ministry of Health withdrew salami: what causes salmonella

We have already said it, but in this case repeating the health risks of salmonella is an extra step towards prevention. The risk of ingesting food contaminated with bacteria salmonella it is in fact quite serious and can lead to serious health problems. Salmonella is a genus of bacteria that can cause an infection called salmonellosis.

THE symptoms Typical include:

  • diarrhea
  • fever
  • abdominal cramps
  • nausea
  • vomit

In severe cases, Salmonella infection can lead to complications such as dehydrationsepsis and invasive infections requiring the recovery in hospital.

To prevent the spread of salmonellosis, the Ministry of Health has therefore decided to recall all products that have been contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The recall is a precautionary measure to protect public health and prevent the spread of infection.

Therefore, be careful not to consume the liver salami reported in the recall, because eating contaminated food can lead to salmonellosis epidemics.

A similar episode happened with some egg, withdrawn last January. Even on that occasion, as the Ministry of Health explained, the symptoms are many and can appear between 6 and 72 hours after ingestion. In most cases, however, the effects are revealed between 12 and 36 hours. The subjects most at risk are children, the elderly, pregnant women, those suffering from sickle cell anemia and those suffering from HIV (in the latter case, recurrent cases of non-typhoid septicemia are also recorded).
