Man sues company for salmonella-tainted sausage

February 12, 2010

A Chicago man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Daniele International following the recall of 1.24 million pounds of sausage products, alleging he fell ill for “almost a month” in November 2009 after coming in contact with Salmonella-tainted pepper used in a salami product.

Raymond Cirimele filed the suit in Cook County Thursday, claiming he regularly purchased the now-recalled salami product at a Cosco in Cook County, according to a statement from the man’s lawyers.

Cirimele is also suing Mincing Overseas Trading Company, which the suit alleges is linked to the salmonella-tainted pepper, the statement said.

An Illinois family field also a lawsuit against Daniele International on Jan. 26 alleging a 3-month-old boy became ill after eating the company’s pepper-coated salami.

On Jan. 24, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services ordered the recall of 1.24 million pounds of ready-to-eat Italian sausage products made by Daniele International Inc., according to a press release from the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The company voluntarily recalled all products made with black pepper—mainly salami and other sausage products—after product testing showed an indirect link to the bacteria, the release said. The black pepper is believed to be the source of contamination.
