What You Should Do

Check your fridge for recalled products or any other Fratelli Beretta brand Uncured Antipasto trays with “best by” dates on or before February 11, 2022. If you have any left:

  • Do not eat or cook them.
  • Throw them away or return them to where you bought them.
  • Wash surfaces and containers that may have touched the recalled product using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

Always follow these four food safety steps to prevent getting sick from Salmonella: 

  • Clean: Wash your hands, utensils, and surfaces often.
  • Separate: Keep food that won’t be cooked separate from raw meat, poultry, and seafood.
  • Cook: Use a food thermometer to make sure you have cooked your food to a temperature high enough to kill germs.
  • Chill: Refrigerate perishable food (food that goes bad) within 2 hours. If the food is exposed to temperatures above 90°F (like a hot car or picnic), refrigerate it within 1 hour. Thaw food in the refrigerator, not on the counter.
