The products subject to recall do not bear the federal mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri between the dates of Oct. 26, 2016 through Feb. 23, 2017.
The problem was discovered by a compliance investigator with the State of Kansas. The investigator observed three pounds of beef jerky product in commerce that did not have any state or federal marks of inspection and notified FSIS.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
