You might want to rethink that charcuterie board at your next dinner party. Cured meat producer Daniele International recalled approximately 52,914 pounds of sopressata, salami and other sausage products over concerns they may be contaminated with listeria, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said on Sunday.
During routine inspection, the FSIS found a possible source of listeria on the manufacturer’s conveyor machinery, Daniele International CEO Chris Bowler said in a statement to CNET. The recalled products bear the establishment number “Est. 54” and were shipped to retail locations nationwide from Dec. 23, 2022, through Jan. 17, 2023, according to the USDA.
Eight different sausage products were included in the recall. If any of these are in your fridge, the USDA urges you to throw them away or return them immediately.

So far, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions of consumption, according to the USDA. Listeria can cause a serious infection in older people, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant people and newborns, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Our Food Safety team took immediate action to fully sanitize our equipment and test the quality of our products,” Bowler said. “While we are confident our products were produced safely, and while we have not received any consumer complaints regarding this concern, we support the decision to issue a recall of potentially impacted products out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers.” .”
