WASHINGTON (WSYM) - 1,076 pounds of ready to eat salami and speck products are being recalled by Piller’s Fine Foods after possibly being adulterated with Salmonella.

The recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Saturday.

The ready-to-eat speck prosciutto and salami items were produced on Sept. 22 and Oct. 12, 2017, respectively. The following products are subject to recall:

Vacuum-sealed random weight plastic packages containing “Black Kassel Piller’s Dry Aged D’Amour Salami” with Best Before date of May 12, 2018.

Vacuum-sealed random weight plastic packages containing “Black Kassel Piller’s Dry Aged Speck Smoked Prosciutto” with Best Before date of May 12, 2018.

Officials say these items were produced in Canada and were shipped to distribution centers in California, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and New York.

The problem was discovered when a Food Safety and Inspection Service sample of the ready-to-eat salami product was confirmed positive for Salmonella. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers, officials said.

Consumers who’ve purchased these products are being urged not to eat them.

The products should be either thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
