Minnesota Sam’s Club may have sold sampler containing salmonella

State officials are still conducting an investigation; no recall has been issued

Sam’s Club shoppers in Minnesota are being warned that a charcuterie sampler could contain salmonella, reports the Star Tribune.

However, a recall has not been issued and the manufacturer of the sampler, Busseto Foods, says none of its products currently pose a safety risk.

The warning was delivered after an individual became ill in December after eating a Busseto brand charcuterie sampler. The Minnesota Department of Health then tested an unopened sampler at the person’s home and results came back positive for salmonella.

The three-meat sampler contained prosciutto, sweet sopressata, and dry coppa, but the state does not know which meat was tainted. Health officials are recommending shoppers do not eat the Busseto sampler with the LOT number L075330300 and the expiration of April 27, 2024.

The Minnesota Department of Health and Department of Agriculture are continuing with their investigation, but in the meantime Simone Bocchini, president and COO of Fratellia Berreta USA, which owns Busseto Foods, says state officials have not been communicating with Fratellia Berreta about the issue.

Bocchini also insists there is no knowledge internally or otherwise of any of its products posing a safety risk. If there is, the company says it will take appropriate action.

Information on which Sam’s Club sold the sampler, or if the retailer has issued a recall, is not available.
