Rhode Island Company Recalling 1.2M Pounds Of Salami

A Rhode Island meat company is recalling 1.2 million pounds of pepper-coated salami due to concerns about salmonella contamination.
The recall Saturday by Daniele International Inc. comes amid an investigation of a salmonella outbreak that's sickened 184 people in 38 states since July.
The Burrillville company says 11 people who got sick had eaten salami from the Daniele Italian Brand Gourmet Pack.
The company says health officials have not confirmed a link between its meat and the sicknesses, but it wanted to recall the salami as it conducts further tests.
The company has set up a hot line for consumers or distributors at (888) 345-4160.
Eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a potentially life-threatening bacterial foodborne illness.
