Deli meat was the likely the source of the outbreak, the agency said. Nine victims reported eating Italian-style meats, such as salami, though the CDC has yet to identify a common meat or supplier as the source.

Why are they so vague?  Well,

Symptoms of infection usually begin one to four weeks after eating contaminated food... Previous Listeria outbreaks have been linked to hard boiled eggs, mushrooms and soft cheeses.

I suspect they're not even certain it was "Italian-style meats."

I take it that these deli meat providers were trying to pass it off as fresh due to recent under sales and the pandemic. That's unconscionable.
