Importer Recalls Italian Salami Products Not Presented for Import Reinspection

Ferrarini USA, Importer of Record in San Fernando, CA, is recalling approximately 15,118 pounds of salami products that were not presented for import reinspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Saturday. Import reinspection by FSIS is required before an imported product is eligible to enter commerce.

The products subject to recall include:

Product Name Package Type/Size Package Code
Salame Emilia Ferrarini Log Boxes of 5 logs weighing 7.7 lbs. each. 60516 3222 3208
Salame Parma Ferrarini Log Boxes of 5 logs weighing 7.7 lbs. each. 60518 3224 3295
Salame Parma Ferrarini Log Boxes of 4 logs weighing 7.7 lbs. each. 60518 2685 2686
Ferrarini Salame Parma Boxes of 20 chubs weighing 250 g each. 61082 3320 3320

Each box bears the code “IT G4279 CE” inside the Italian mark of inspection, though individual logs may not. The products were shipped to distributors in Arizona and California for further distribution to retailers.

FSIS import inspection staff and the import house discovered the problem when the shipment was not presented for reinspection as scheduled. FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Grant Linebach at (818) 256-1622.
