Beef Jerky Recalled for Potentially Harmful ‘Process Deviation’

About 32 pounds of beef jerky were recalled Sunday because of a “process deviation,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).Oscar's beef jerky label

Oscar’s Hickory House Inc., located in Warrensburg, NY, recalled 4-ounce and 8- ounce cryovac packages of “Oscar’s Adirondack Mountain Smokehouse Beef Jerky” with code 420 on the label.

The recalled product, which bears the establishment number “EST. 4257” inside the USDA mark of inspection, was produced on Dec. 26, 2014, and sold by one retailer in New York. It was also sold via the Internet.

During a food safety assessment, FSIS inspectors discovered the product was susceptible to environmental pathogens that make it potentially harmful if consumed. No illnesses have yet been associated with the beef jerky recall.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

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 here.
