Oscar’s Hickory House Inc., a Warrensburg, N.Y. establishment, is recalling approximately 32 pounds of beef jerky product due to a processing deviation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to recall: 4-oz and 8 oz. cryovac packages of “Oscar’s Adirondack Mountain Smokehouse Beef Jerky” with code 420 on the label
The product, which bears the establishment number “EST. 4257” inside the USDA mark of inspection, was produced on December 26, 2014 and sold by one retailer in New York. The product was also sold via the internet.
The problem was discovered by FSIS inspectors during a food safety assessment; it was found that the product is susceptible to environmental pathogens and therefore potentially harmful if consumed.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness 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/recalls.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Joq Quintal at (518) 623-3431 ext. 2.
