A beef jerky recall has been issued by Prime Snax Inc. - a Salt Lake City, Utah business. The beef jerky recall involves some 90,000 pounds of the beef jerky products that were not labeled correctly. The labeling did not identify soy lecithin as an ingredient, according to an ABC News report on Wednesday. Soy lecithin is an allergen.
The food safety service of United States Department of Agriculture announced earlier this week that Prime Snax Inc. is recalling any of its products that were made prior to Feb. 2. They reportedly may have already been shipped around the country.
Arizona Jacks, Southwest Trail, Desert Star, Terrell, and Kettle Creek are the five beef jerky brands that have been affected in the massive recall.
All of the effected products have markings which read “EST. 18951” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. Additionally, the labeling have an expiration date of Aug. 11, 2015.
Thus far, there have been no reports of negative reactions to the mislabeled products, according to officials.
