After the CDC identified Fratelli Beretta antipasto trays as the source of a Salmonella outbreak, the Mount Olive, NJ company issued a recall. The recalled 24-oz. trays containing two 12-oz packages with sliced salami, prosciutto, soppressata, and coppa were sold nationwide at Costco and elsewhere. UPDATE September 2, 2021- This 431-ton recall was not large enough according to an August 31, 2021, public health action from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warning consumers not to eat any Fratelli Berretta antipasto trays with “best by” dates through February 11, 2022, not just the one under recall.
