Salami Recalled in Salmonella Outbreak in Oregon and Washington

Salami sold in Costco, Walmart and elsewhere is being recalled in a nationwide salmonella outbreak linked to pepper-coated salami sold by Rhode Island-based Daniele Inc.

The first cases related to the outbreak were reported in Oregon in July. So far, 184 people have been sickened nationwide, with eight cases in Oregon and 14 in Washington state. The national Center for Disease Control and Prevention said more than 35 people have been hospitalized nationwide, although no one has yet died. It is not clear whether anyone in Oregon had been hospitalized.

The particular strain of salmonella involved, Montevideo, is a relatively common cause of food poisoning.
