Sickness has spread throughout 40 of the 50 states as America is stunned by a surprise biological attack recently launched by Rhode Island.


(CNN) -- The Rhode Island Department of Health said Thursday that pepper-coated salami manufactured by Italian sausage company Daniele Inc. has tested positive for the strain of salmonella associated with a recent national outbreak.

Specifically, traces of salmonella were found in samples of the black pepper used to prepare Daniele's salami, the agency said.

Lab testing was done as part of a national health investigation. In recent weeks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and state health departments have together been trying to determine possible sources for a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Montevideo infections, using DNA analysis of salmonella bacteria found in those reporting illness.

On Saturday, 18 different Daniele Italian deli products -- in total, 1.2 million pounds of salami -- were recalled by the manufacturer and the USDA.

According to the CDC, at least 189 cases of illness due to Salmonella Montevideo have been reported across 40 states since July. The strain is a common one, so public health officials noted that some of the illnesses may not be part of this outbreak.

However, the preliminary results of a CDC epidemiological study suggest that salami was a possible source of illness in the outbreak.

On Wednesday, Daniele announced it had changed its spice suppliers and spice specifications and is now using only irradiated pepper in its products. "The company's goal right now is to take prudent, proactive measures to do everything possible to remove any products that do not meet our high standards for quality and taste," the Pascoag, Rhode Island-based company said in a statement.

Symptoms of salmonellosis, or food poisoning from ingesting salmonella-contaminated foods include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.

Sensationalized heading! Hahaha! A bit reminiscent of baofeng. The whole truth is a better piece of equipment.

I think I had some of that sausage on my pizza earlier this week -- fortunately, my digestive system is cast-iron!

Where'dya go? You put this thread-up for a discussion or for deposition?

The Islamic Revolutionaries, totothedog, buddy35 and their relatives spend hours looking for delicacies to drop on us -- but there is no discussion, unless it's with themselves.

Methinks he is still learning the ropes.  As for Joe... he is busy dreaming how many slaves/serfs he can own under a new, "Imperial United Asia".
