The February 2015 recall by Marshall, TX-based Bear Creek Smokehouse of approximately 3,700 pounds of beef products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen has been closed out, company officials say. The products contained soy, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label. The barbeque beef items were produced on various dates between Nov. 22, 2013, and Jan. 21, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
- 1-pound plastic containers of “Beasley’s Smokehouse Chopped Barbeque Beef with Sauce.”
- 1-pound plastic containers of “Bear Creek Smokehouse Chopped Beef Brisket.”
- 5-pound plastic containers of “Bear Creek Smokehouse Chopped Beef Brisket.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 7226” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items produced were shipped to retail locations in Texas. The problem was discovered by Bear Creek personnel. No adverse reactions have yet been associated with the recalled products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
