Charcuterie Meat Trays Causes Salmonella Outbreak Alert at Costco and Sam’s Club
As of January 19, 2024, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has escalated its caution regarding a salmonella outbreak tied to charcuterie meat trays available at Costco and Sam’s Club. This development follows a comprehensive investigation initiated earlier this month, revealing 47 confirmed cases of illness and 10 hospitalizations across 22 states.
Identify the Culprits: Busseto and Fratelli Beretta Brands Under Scrutiny
The implicated products include the Busseto brand charcuterie sampler from Sam’s Club and the Fratelli Beretta brand Antipasto Gran Beretta from Costco. These twin packs showcase a variety of dried meats, including salami, prosciutto, coppa, and soppressata.
Take Immediate Action: CDC Advises Against Consumption and Recommends Precautions
While the investigation is ongoing, the CDC strongly advises consumers to refrain from consuming these products and emphasizes the importance of thoroughly washing any items that may have come into contact with them. Salmonella can result in severe illness, particularly in vulnerable populations.
Recognize Symptoms: Stay Informed for Your Well-being
Common symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps, with onset occurring between six hours to six days after exposure. Individuals experiencing specific symptoms such as diarrhea with a fever exceeding 102°F, persistent diarrhea lasting more than three days, bloody stools, prolonged vomiting, or signs of dehydration should seek immediate medical attention.
Probe Continues: Ongoing Investigation to Identify Additional Contaminated Products
Investigators are actively working to determine if any other products may be contaminated. Both the Busseto and Fratelli Beretta brands, affiliated with the same company, are cooperating with authorities.
