Kansas City-based Flavor Trade LLC recalled about 113 pounds of beef jerky products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection and used the USDA mark of inspection without authorization, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
- 3-ounce sealed packages containing “Craft Beer Jerky: Created with Wheat” which may or may not include package code 614261.
- 3-ounce sealed packages containing “Craft Beer Jerky: Created with Porter” which may or may not include package code 619290.
The products subject to recall may or may not have a USDA mark of inspection, which would include establishment number “EST. 48135.” These items were shipped to retail locations in Missouri.
The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel after a consumer provided a package of the product. No one has yet reported being ill from the jerky. 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.
