Utah company recalls 90,000 pounds of beef jerky

Beef Jerky

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah company is recalling about 90,000 pounds of beef jerky products that were mislabeled and didn't list on the packaging the ingredient soy lecithin, an allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's food safety service announced Tuesday that Salt Lake City-based Prime Snax Inc. is recalling products made before Feb. 2 that were shipped around the country.

The recall affects five of the company's beef jerky brands: Arizona Jacks, Desert Star, Southwest Trail, Terrell and Kettle Creek.

Officials say there have been no reports of adverse reactions to the products.

Prime Snax CEO Kevin Howard says the recall was voluntary and a technical labeling mistake.

He says soy lecithin is used as part of a cleaning procedure during production, and regulators informed the company it should be listed on the label.

Ya Stella, the warning says it's hot coffee but you spill it and burn yourself and you get millions. How many labels do we have to put on products-let alone in different languages to protect the ignorant?? Printing costs in different languages are not cheap-just go and get a few copies made at a local printer and see what the cost are. Maybe a few quarters at least-but that is passed onto the final product cost. Therefore we all pay for the ignorant and the ambulance chasing attorneys that soon become judges!!!

When I saw the header, on AOL I first thought that the inspectors caught up with Jack Link and that they were actually making jerky out of Sasquatch.

Odd.... Soy Lecithin is used in everything. It's a fat emulsifier and can be taken in capsul form. Many buy the lecithin in bags at Whole Foods and mix it into protein drinks and such..

Why recall it? Sell it to people for half price who are willing to eat that produt! Place a sign on the display to make sure people know about the recall and let them be the judge of what they eat.
The FDA should worry more about all the food colorings, flavorigs and chemiclas put in our foods! BHT and BHA are both terrible preservatives that can cause tumors and or tumor acceleration in the body. It's also toxic to the kidneys. CHEAP food use poison preservatives in them because they don't care about the people!
