Tennessee Brown Bag, LLC, a Hixson, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 4,590 pounds of beef jerky products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced April 22, 2022.

The ready-to-eat beef jerky products were produced from January 2020 through April 2022. All products are 3.0 oz. and 1.5 oz. brown zippered packages with best by dates through April 2023. The names of the products are Tennessee Brown Bag Original, Peppered, Spicy, Teriyaki, Hotiyaki Sweet Heat, Dill Pickle and Jalepeno Dill.

The products subject to recall do not bear the USDA mark of inspection because Tennessee Brown Bag, LLC is not a federally inspected establishment. The firm produced seven beef jerky varieties and sold the product directly to consumers nationwide through websites and through retail locations in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The problem was discovered when the Tennessee Department of Agriculture notified Food Safety and Inspection Service about the products.

After investigation, the service determined that the beef jerky products did not have the USDA mark of inspection and were produced in an establishment that was not inspected by USDA.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
