MILWAUKEE -- Bolzano Artisan Meats LLC is recalling more than 5,000 pounds of salami because of mislabeling. 

Products produced under the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection  inspection program are eligible for sale in Wisconsin when they have the Wisconsin state inspection shield on the package.

The salami being recalled, however, are incorrectly labeled with the Cooperative Interstate Shipment program version of the USDA Mark of Inspection, which requires federal acceptance into the program.  

Bolzano Artisan Meats LLC is not part of the CIS program, so products incorrectly labeled with the CIS program version of the USDA Mark of Inspection cannot be sold.  

Products bearing the Wisconsin state inspection shield on the immediate package are not subject to this recall.                                                                                                 

The meats included in the recall are:

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)

6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of “Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, Pitzotl Salami,” 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7935 7322 1698)

6-oz. or 12-oz. packages of “Bolzano Artisan Meats All Natural Uncured, RauchZwiebel Salami,” 6/6-oz. or 3/12-oz. packages per case (UPC 7395 7320 3588)

Salami subject to recall were produced between Sept. 20, 2013 and March 15, 2014, include batch numbers 1208 to 1214, and bear the CIS program version of USDA Mark of Inspection with the establishment number “EST. 692SEWI.”

Cases containing the products subject to recall may bear the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (WDATCP) inspection label, but the individual product packages may be misbranded with the CIS program version of the USDA Mark of Inspection.

The recalled products were distributed for institutional and retail sales nationwide as well as sold over the internet.
