Wisconsin Firm Recalls Salami Type Products Misbranded With USDA Mark of Inspection

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall of Bolzano Artisan Meats LLC salami products for misbranding and because they were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Products produced under the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (WDATCP) inspection program are eligible for sale within the state of Wisconsin when they bear the Wisconsin state inspection shield on the immediate package. The products being recalled, however, incorrectly bear the Cooperative Interstate Shipment (CIS) program version of the USDA Mark of Inspection, which requires federal acceptance into the program. Because the establishment is not part of the CIS program, products they produced and distributed bearing the CIS program version of the USDA Mark of Inspection cannot be sold through interstate commerce.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of "Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, Old School Salami," 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7935 7389 6360)
  • 6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of "Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, Pamplona Runner Salami," 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7935 7389 6353)
  • 6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of "Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, Fin Oh Kee Oh Na Salami," 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7935 7320 3564)
  • 6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of "Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, Pig Red Salami," 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7935 7320 3571)
