The same strain of salmonella that made more than 200 people sick in at least 42 states ,  has been found in black pepper, according to tests by the Department of Health. Spokeswoman Annemarie Beardsworth says its not clear if the pepper is the only source of the outbreak.
Black pepper was used to coat salami at Daniele Inc., a meat company in Burrillville, R.I. The company recalled more than 1 million pounds of salami last month after many of those who got
sick reported they ate it.  But Beardsworth says about half the people who got sick didn't eat
any salami. She says federal officials are investigating whether any contaminated pepper was sold directly to consumers or used in prepared foods.
