WASHINGTON– Frickenschmidt Foods LLC, a Lockwood, Mo. establishment, is recalling nearly 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat beef stick products due to misbranding

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on February 22, 2022.

The product, High Protein Snack Teriyaki Beef Wicked Cutz Beef Stick, contains and declares wheat as an ingredient but has an incorrect statement of “gluten free” on the label.

The recalled items were packaged in individually sealed 1.5 oz puches on Nov. 30, 2021, Dec. 1, 2021, and Jan. 28, 2021 with lot code 113022, 120122, or 012823 printed in blue ink on the back of the product package.

The products subject to recall bears establishment number “M33928,” which is printed in blue ink on the back of the product package as well. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide and sold through online sales.

The problem was discovered when the distribution company notified the establishment that the product is labeled as “gluten free” but lists wheat in the ingredients statement.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Those who have purchased the ready-to-eat beef stick products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
