STATEWIDE — Investigators with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe they’ve found one source of a nationwide Salmonella outbreak linked to Italian-style meats.
Ill people reported eating Fratelli Beretta brand Uncured Antipasto trays before they got sick, says the CDC.
The trays were sold across the country in vacuum-sealed plastic packages. The trays can include salami, prosciutto, coppa, or soppressata and have “best-by” dates on or before Feb. 11, 2022.
Thirty-six people in seventeen states, including Indiana, have reported getting sick. Twelve of those people ended up in the hospital.
If you have any of the Antipasto trays at home, throw them away. If you don’t know the brand of the pre-packaged Italian-style meats you have at home, don’t eat them and throw them away.
Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Symptoms start within six hours to six days after swallowing the bacteria and most people recover after four to seven days. The elderly, young children, and those with health conditions are at higher risk of developing severe salmonella illness.
