Recall of Salmonella-contaminated salami

Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 31st May 2010

Borgo Smallgoods is conducting a recall of its Friulano Salame, Lismore Salame and Casalingo Salame after detection of Salmonella bovismorbificans in the products.

The recall affects products with a Best Before date of 30 Aug 2010 and 6 Sep 10 for all three products, and is limited to products purchased in Queensland.

It is not currently clear how the products became contaminated, or whether any cases of resulting food-borne illness have yet been reported.

Some symptoms of Salmonella poisoning are vomiting, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain which persists for more than 24 hours.  Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

The recall applies only to the above products with the nominated best before dates. No other Borgo Smallgoods products are affected by this recall.

If consumers know they have the affected products they should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
