A California company is recalling more than 67,800 pounds of beef jerky because of misbranding and undeclared sesame oil, according to a recall notice posted by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Legacy Food Company Inc. of Rancho Cucamonga, CA, produced the beef jerky on various dates from July 20, 2020 through May 14 this year. The recall notice did not include use-by or best-by dates for the products.
“The problem was discovered during routine FSIS label verification activities when it was determined that the labels did not accurately list all sub-ingredients,” according to the recall notice. “There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.”
Any one concerned about an allergic reaction because of the undeclared sesame should contact their health care provider.
Consumers can use the following label information to determine whether they have any of the jerky products:
- 10-lb. packages containing “N4 Vua Kho Bo Curry Beef Jerky.”
- 10-lb. packages containing “N8 Vua Kho Bo Flank Steak Beef Jerky Fish Sauce.”
- 10-lb. packages containing “N9 Vua Kho Bo House Special Beef Jerky Fish Sauce.”
- 10-lb. packages containing “Vua Kho Bo Hot Beef Jerky.”
- 10-lb. packages containing “Hot Peppered Beef Jerky.”
- 16-oz packages containing “Formosa Brand Hot Peppered Beef Jerky.”
The 10-pound products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. 8256” and the 16-oz product listed above bears establishment number “EST 2446” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
These items were sold online and shipped to retail stores in California. The 10-pound products are sold in bulk packaging and were removed from their original packaging and repackaged and relabeled for online sales. Retail stores remove the products from their original packaging and display them in bins for sale.
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, according to the FSIS.
