The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection announced a statewide recall of Wisconsin-made beef jerky that was not properly inspected before it hit stores.

The DATCP, along with Johnson’s Sausage Shoppe, Inc. of Columbia County, issued the recall Monday after state inspectors found the jerky was not given the appropriate inspection under state law.

The brands affected are:

  • North Oak, Peppercorn Jerky
  • North Oak, Hickory Smoked Jerky
  • Johnson’s Sausage Shoppe, Inc., Beef Jerky
  • Johnson’s Sausage Shoppe, Inc., “Our Famous” Beef Jerky
  • Johnson’s Sausage Shoppe, Inc., Nitrite Free! Beef Jerky
  • Twisted Oak Farms, Nitrite Free! Beef Jerky

The affected products were sold on or before Jan. 5 in quarter pound packages and have the Wisconsin legend with the number 293. Consumers are encouraged to return the jerky to the place of purchase or throw it away.

Johnson’s has voluntarily recalled its products, and the DATCP says the company is working with them to collect as much of the targeted jerky as possible.
