WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A Westchester County pork manufacturer is recalling more than 5,000 pounds of salami products that were misbranded and contained an undeclared allergen.

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) announced it was recalling 5,750 pounds of product from the Mamaroneck-based Picone Meat Specialities.

According to the FSIS, the dry fermented salami products were produced between April 1 last year and Jan. 18. The products reportedly contain non-fat dry milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The recalled products include:

  • 15-lb. Box containing 6 – 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Spicy Dry Salami” bearing the case code P11.
  • 209-lb. Box containing 12 – 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Sweet Dry Salami” bearing the case code P17.
  • 192-lb. Box containing 9 – 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Spicy Soppressata Salami” bearing the case code P11.
  • 327-lb. Box containing 13 – 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Sweet Soppressata Salami” bearing the case code P17.
  • 1,120 -lb. Box containing bulk 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Sweet Soppressata Salami.”
  • 658-lb. Box containing bulk 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Spicy Soppressata Salami.”
  • 1,203-lb. Box containing bulk 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Sweet Dry Salami.”
  • 525-lb. Box containing bulk 20-24 lb. vacuum-packed packages of “Uncle Guiseppe’s Spicy Dry Salami.”
  • 300-lb. Bulk box containing vacuum-packed packages of “Giorgio’s Cacciatorino Piccante.”
  • 300-lb. Bulk box containing vacuum-packed packages of “Giorgio’s Cacciatorino Dolce.”
  • 400-lb. Bulk box containing vacuum-packed packages of “Giorgio’s Hot Soppressatta”
  • 400-lb. Bulk box containing vacuum-packed packages of “Giorgio’s Sweet Soppressatta”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M4445” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in New York.

FSIS discovered the presence of the allergen earlier this week, while they were conducting label review verification activities. There have been no reports of any allergic reactions from the product. Consumers who purchased any of the tainted meat have been advised to not consume them and to dispose of them.
