Federal officials say Rhode Island-based Daniele International is expanding its recall of salami products that may be contaminated with salmonella.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday that 115,000 pounds of salami products manufactured by the Burrillville meat company were being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination from crushed red pepper.
Daniele recalled more than 1 million pounds of salami coated in black pepper last month. The expanded recall includes several products that were distributed nationwide and have sell-by dates ranging from Feb. 3 through May 26.
Testing is continuing to determine if the red pepper products contain the same salmonella strain that has sickened more than 200 people in at least 42 states since July.
