23 pounds of Pigeon Forge jerky recalled due to possible underprocessing issues
23 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken jerky products have been recalled due to a processing issue that may have led to the underprocessing of products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.
Chicken jerky items from Jerky Boyz Chicken Jerky in Pigeon Forge produced from Sept. 6 through Sept. 26 with the following labels are subject to recall:
• 2.5-oz. clear plastic packages containing “Jerky BoyZ Chicken Jerky Buffalo Wing” with lot code 81101.
• 2.5-oz. clear plastic packages containing “Jerky BoyZ Chicken Jerky Kickin’ Pepper” with lot code 81101.
The recalled products have the establishment No. P-46388 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The jerky is believed to have been shipped to retail locations in Tennessee.
The problem was discovered Wednesday by FSIS inspectors during a records review. Officials have not received any reports of reactions from the consumption of the jerky products. Anyone concerned about possible illness, should contact their doctor.
