Q & A with Cristiano Creminelli

Q: I bought a salami wrapped in paper and it was sticky. What should I do?

A: The stickiness is a result of condensation mixing with the rice flour on the outside of the salami. It isn’t altogether uncommon for this to occur on one small spot of the salami and should not keep you from consuming the salami as normal. If the entire salami is sticky and difficult to handle, you can either stick it back in the refrigerator unwrapped until it dries, or take it back to the store and have it replaced. We guarantee satisfaction on all of our products so please let us know at if you are not able to replace it at the store.
