Misbranding, allergen force parmesan salami sticks recall


CLEVELAND, Ohio – Creminelli Fine Meats of Salt Lake City is recalling about 4,207 pounds of ready-to-eat parmesan salami sticks due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The product contains egg lysozyme, an egg-white protein and allergen that is not declared on the label.

The items were packaged from Oct. 26, 2021, through April 26, 2022. The product was shipped to retail locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts and Utah. While Ohio is not on the list, the item was sold via internet sales.

The products are 2.6-ounce plastic pouches containing “Creminelli Fine Meats salami minis Uncured Italian Salami Parmesan” with best-by dates from 06/18/22 through 12/09/22. Products subject to recall bear “EST34644″ next to the best-by date.

Routine label verification review uncovered the problem.

Egg-white lysozyme, a component of the parmesan cheese ingredient, is not declared on the label.

No confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products have been reported. FSIS is concerned some product might be in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
