West Virginia Firm Recalls Beef Jerky Products Due To Processing Deviation
The products subject to recall include:
- 1-oz., 3-oz. and 16-oz. packages of “Lone Star Western Beef Inc. W.V. Original Beef Jerky.” [Label]
The products were produced on Aug. 12, 2013, and bear the establishment number “EST. 19563” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The 16-oz. package can be further identified by the package code “081213.” The products were shipped to a distributor in North Central West Virginia and sold to retail stores.
The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during a routine verification activity. The inspector was reviewing processing records and found that the beef jerky was not processed at the correct temperature to ensure that the ready-to-eat product was safe to consume.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction 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 on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact John Bachman, Lone Star Western Beef, Inc.’s Owner, at 1-800-332-4305.
