On January 3, 2024, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Fratelli Beretta USA, Inc. was recalling approximately 11,097 pounds of Busseto Foods brand ready-to-eat charcuterie meat products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall was initiated after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found Salmonella present in a sample from a previously unopened “Busseto Foods Charcuterie Sampler Prosciutto, Sweet Soppressata, and Dry Coppa” product. The CDC is testing the sample to confirm that it matches the strain responsible for an outbreak of Salmonella illnesses that has sickened 24 people in ten different states.

This page will update as we uncover more information. If you or a loved one believe you were sickened in this outbreak, please call or contact us using the form on this page for a free consultation.
Fratelli Beretta announced a recall of the following products:
There are more than 2,500 serotypes of Salmonella, but fewer than 100 cause infections in humans. One of these illness-causing strains is a serotype called Salmonella I 4:I:-. This is the strain responsible for the current outbreaks. Salmonella poisoning can be so severe that it requires people to be hospitalized. Already, five people have been hospitalized in this outbreaks so far.
Salmonella can even be fatal when the infection leaves the intestines and travels to the bloodstream or other parts of the body. It is also possible to experience long-term side effects, including joint pain known as reactive arthritis, which is also called RA or Reiter’s Syndrome. This can last for months or years and result in chronic arthritis, which is difficult to treat. Reactive arthritis can also lead to eye irritation and painful urination. In rare cases, some types of Salmonella cause typhoid fever, which can be fatal.
