(UNDATED) - Hickory Hollow Jerky, an Alabama company, is recalling approximately 1,800 pounds of flavored beef jerky products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen.
The products contain Worcestershire sauce, and anchovy paste is a subcomponent. Fish is a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

3-oz. Original Recipe "HICKORY HOLLOW BEEF JERKY" bearing the establishment number "EST. 34550" inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label.
3-oz. Sweet Heat BBQ "HICKORY HOLLOW BEEF JERKY" bearing the establishment number "EST. 34550" inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label.
3-oz. Hot Shot "HICKORY HOLLOW BEEF JERKY" bearing the establishment number "EST. 34550"inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label.
The products were produced on various dates between Dec. 4, 2012 and June 4, 2013. They were sold nationwide, at retail stores and over the Internet.
The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector who conducted a label review prompted by the April 30, 2013, which prompts FSIS inspectors to check labels for accuracy.
FSIS took the step of issuing the notice in an effort to protect vulnerable consumers after observing an increase in the number of products recalled from 2008 through 2012 due to the presence of undeclared allergens or other ingredients. FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
