Prime Snax Incorporated, a Salt Lake City, Utah establishment, is recalling approximately 90,000 pounds of beef jerky products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced. The products were processed with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin, a known allergen that is not declared on the label.  

The products subject to recall were produced prior to Feb. 2, 2014, and were shipped to retail locations nationwide. The Beef Jerky products include:                                              

Arizona Jacks Brand:

  • 8 oz./24 count packages of “Original”

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 18951” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection and a date on the packages prior to August 11, 2015, in the format of “mm dd yy.”

The problem was discovered by an FSIS in-plant inspector during a label review. The firm believed the releasing agent was a processing aid that did not need to be declared on the label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
