Fratelli Beretta USA, Inc., is recalling an undetermined amount of ready-to-eat charcuterie meat products due to possible under-processing, which could lead to contamination with foodborne pathogens. These items have been distributed to retailers nationwide.

M47967 or M7543B" either inside the USDA mark of inspection or in inkjet print on the package front. The products subject to the recall and the product labels are available in the link below.
