According to the USDA, the products subject to recall bear establishment number “9295” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered on July 5, 2018 by the firm during a routine label review. Specifically, the firm produced “Old Fashioned Silver Dollar Beef Jerky” products with case code 81471, and inadvertently labeled the products within the case with the “Teriyaki Beef Jerky” label. The “Old Fashioned Silver Dollar Beef Jerky” contains Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), but the Teriyaki Beef Jerky does not.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Beef Jerky products and could be allergic to their Monosodium Glutamate (“MSG”) ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.
