The people sickened in this outbreak all reported eating Citterio Premium Italian-Style Salame Sticks they had purchased at different Trader Joe’s locations before they became ill. Their illnesses began on dates ranging from September 20, 2021 to September 29, 2021.

The Minnesota Department of Health is warning Minnesotans not to eat Citterio brand Premium Italian-Style Salame Sticks at this time. These products are sold at Trader Joe’s and possibly other retail locations. Health officials don’t believe other brands of salami sticks or other Citterio brand products pose a Salmonella risk at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.

Salmonella sickens 1.35 million people in the U.S. every year. In Minnesota, 700 to 975 cases are reported annually. Because most cases go unreported, health officials believe the actual number of Salmonella illnesses is much higher.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain or cramping. These symptoms usually develop within six to 72 hours of eating contaminated food.
