An already massive recall of salami and Italian sausage linked to a 44-state salmonella outbreak is expanding again.

Well over 1 million pounds of meat made at the Rhode Island facilities of Daniele International has been recalled since late January, with another 116,000 pounds added this week.

In addition to meat sold under the Daniele label, its products also were sold under the popular deli brands Boar's Head and Dietz & Watson.
