State health officials advise Minnesotans not to eat premium Italian-style Citterio salami sticks

Minnesota Health Department officials warn Minnesota consumers not to eat premium Italian-style salmon sticks made by Citterio and purchased from Trader Joe’s or other retailers after associating salmonella infections with the product.

Three Minnesotans have been identified as part of this outbreak. The patients became ill between September 20th and September 29th. One was hospitalized for two days and all of them have recovered. In all three cases, it is reported that Citterio Premium Italian-style salame sticks were consumed, purchased from Trader Joe at various locations. Health authorities recommend avoiding eating the Italian-style Citterio Premium Salame Sticks that you may have at home. It is not currently known to affect other brands of salami sticks and other Citterio products, but research to determine the scope of the problem is ongoing.

Because many cases of salmonella infection (salmonellosis) fail to seek medical care and get tested, the number of sick people involved in this outbreak is likely to be greater than the identified cases. As a result, health authorities want to alert people to this outbreak who have symptoms of salmonellosis but have not yet consulted a doctor. These people should report this outbreak to their doctor in case they consult one.

Symptoms of salmonella infection are diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. Symptoms usually begin within 12 to 96 hours of exposure, but can begin up to two weeks after exposure. Infections usually go away in five to seven days, but about 28% of laboratory-confirmed cases require hospitalization. Many salmonella infections in otherwise healthy people do not require medical treatment. Occasionally, more serious infections will occur. For those seeking medical care, most do not require antibiotics. In some cases, however, antibiotic treatment may be warranted. If you have consumed the affected product, get sick and worry about your health, contact your doctor.
