Dutch Valley Joins Pepper Recall

The nationwide 2010 outbreak of Salmonella Montevideo has another company recalling pepper and products made with pepper.

 

It’s been a week since the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated their figures, but at last count 245 people in 44 states and the District of Columbia had been infected with the Salmonella strain.

 

The outbreak investigation led to the recall of 1.4 million pounds of ready-to-eat meats made by Rhode Island-based Daniele Inc., and then to pepper recalls by Wholesome Spice in New York and Mincing Overseas Spice Company in New Jersey.

 

Both black and red pepper is used as an ingredient in some of the ready-to-eat meats, especially Italian-style salami, which is often coated with pepper.

 

Now Dutch Valley Food Distributors based in Myerstown, PA, which gets its pepper from Mincing Overseas, has joined the recall.

 

It recalled the following products with a Bulk Foods Inc. label:

 

5 Pound boxes of Seasoning Salt, item 808530, with a Mfg. date of 1/4/10 and 2/2/2010
