A Rhode Island company, Daniele Inc., recalled ready-to-eat pepper-coated salami, sausage and other cured meats Saturday, saying they may be contaminated with salmonella.

The recall came amid a salmonella outbreak began in July. So far it has sickened 184 people in 38 states, leading to at least 35 hospitalizations but no deaths, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To date, health officials have not found this salmonella strain in any Daniele products. But 11 people who recently ate "Daniele Italian Brand Gourmet Pack" were infected, said the company's Davide Dukcevich, in a statement on its website.

The answers won't be known until the factory investigation is finished.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps; in infants, elderly and those with weak immune systems, illness can be severe.
