Beef Jerky Recall In New York State Due To Listeria Concerns
Beef jerky has been recalled in New York State and nationwide due to possible listeria contamination. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall today, Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Magnolia Provision Company, Inc., a Knoxville, Tennessee-based company is recalling almost 500 pounds of beef jerky. The ready-to-eat jerky was produced on August 25, 2022.
These are the Magnolia beef jerky products currently being recalled:
- 2-ounce packages of “BEEF JERKY EXPERIENCE CHOP HOUSE STYLE PRIME RIB FLAVORED BEEF JERKY” with “EXP 8/25/23”
- 8-ounce packages of “BEEF JERKY EXPERIENCE CHOP HOUSE STYLE PRIME RIB FLAVORED BEEF JERKY” with “EXP 8/25/23”
- 16-ounce packages of “BEEF JERKY EXPERIENCE CHOP HOUSE STYLE PRIME RIB FLAVORED BEEF JERKY” with “EXP 8/25/23”
The expiration dates are located on the back of each of the packages. The items involved were shipped nationwide.
The problem was discovered when the establishment reported to FSIS that it received confirmation from their third-party lab that a product contact surface sample returned as positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, which mainly affects people with weakened immune systems, older people, pregnant people, and newborns. So far, no injuries have been reported.
Symptoms of listeria include:
- muscle aches
- stiff neck
- loss of balance
- gastrointestinal symptoms
If you have questions or concerns, call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-MPHotline (888-674-6854) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (EST) Monday through Friday.
