Jerky recall: 90,000 pounds of beef jerky recalled after misbranding

90,000 pounds of beef jerky are a huge part of a jerky recall that the USDA announced on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014. The organization states that the product was misbranded and shipped nationwide, according to Infozine on Feb. 12, 2014.

The products in the jerky recall come from Prime Snax Inc., a Salt Lake City company, were processed with soy lecithin, a known allergen. The USDA states that the problem comes from that allergen not being declared on the label.

With that, the jerky recall needs to have those items sent back. All that is being recalled was produced before Feb. 2, 2014.

The products affected by the recall are as listed:

Arizona Jacks Brand:

• 8 oz./24 count packages of "Original"

• 3.5 oz./24 count packages of "Peppered Rippled Cut" and "Original Rippled Cut"

• 6 oz./80 count packages of "Frontier Cuts – Hot," "Frontier Cuts - Pepper," and "Frontier Cuts– Original"

• 3.25 oz./12 count packages of "Super Giga Hot," "Super Giga Original," and "Super Giga Peppered"

• 6 oz./30 count packages of "Premium Peppered," "Premium Original Strip," and "Premium Teriyaki"

• 3.5 oz./30 count packages of "Peppered Thin Cut" and "Original Thin Cut"

• 7 oz./24 count packages of "Peppered Thin Cut," "Thin Cut," "Original Chunky," and "Peppered Chunky"

Desert Star Brand:

• 12 oz./18 count packages of "Desert Star Peppered" and "Desert Star Original"

• 3 oz. - 3 packages/case with 8 pieces/package of "Desert Star Original" and "Desert Star Peppered"

Southwest Trail Brand:

• 1 oz. - 6 packages/case with 12 pieces/package of "Southwest Trail Original," "Southwest Trail Peppered," "Southwest Trail Red Chile," and "Southwest Trail Green Chile"

Kettle Creek Brand:

• 3.5 oz./12 count packages of "Kettle Creek Original" and "Kettle Creek Peppered"

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 18951" inside the USDA Mark of Inspection and a date on the packages prior to Aug. 11, 2015, in the format of "mm dd yy," the USDA wrote in a release.

At this time, there have been no adverse reactions reported by those that consume the products in the jerky recall. The USDA reports the items are safe, but simply misbranded.
