Beef jerky recall

A beef jerky recall is in effect over concerns that packages were misbranded and failed to include a potential allergy-triggering ingredient, reports The Associated Press on Feb. 12.

Salt Lake City-based Prime Snax Inc. is recalling all jerky products made before Feb. 2 that have already been shipped around the country. The products were found to be mislabeled on the packaging and did not include the ingredient soy lecithin – an emulsifier or binding agent that some individuals are allergic to.

According to the USDA’s news release, the products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 18951” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The expiration date on the packages will be prior to August 11, 2015, in the format of “mm dd yy.”

Prime Snax products included in the recall include the brands Arizona Jack, Desert Star, Southwest Trail, Terrell and Kettle Creek.

To date, there have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

The news of this recent jerky recall comes on the heels of a 9 million pound recall of "diseased" meat by the Calif. company Rancho Feeding Corporation.
