USDA Recalls 2.5 Tons of Tennessee Brown Bag Beef Jerky


April 28, 2022

According to an online news report published on TheHill.com, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recalled more than 4,500 pounds of Tennessee Brown Bag beef jerky products. The beef jerky was recalled because the food products were manufactured and marketed without pior federal oversight and inspection.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service media release, the affected Tennessee Brown Bag beef jerky recall concerns all 1.5 ounce and 3 ounce bags in these flavors: spicy, original, peppered, hotiyaki sweet heat, teriyaki, jalapeño sill, and dill pickle. The recalled beef jerky products have a best by date of April 2023.

The recalled beef jerky products were manufactured from January 2020 until April 2022. The following beef jerky items are part of the recall:

  • "TENNESSEE BROWN BAG ORIGINAL" 3.0 ounce and 1.5 ounce brown zippered packages with "Best by" dates through April 2023.
  • "TENNESSEE BROWN BAG PEPPERED" 3.0 ounce and 1.5 ounce brown zippered packages with "Best by" dates through April 2023.

The U.S. FSIS stated that it was alerted about the issue by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

The FSIS reported that there were no reports of of injuries connected to the beef jerky. Consumers were warned to throw out the affected jerky products.
