Public Health Alert for Settlers Jerk Beef Jerky Products Due to Undeclared Allergen, California, USA
January 29, 2021 10:45 AM
California, United States
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert for ready-to-eat (RTE) beef jerky products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The product may contain anchovies, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. FSIS is issuing this public health alert out of the utmost of caution to ensure that consumers with allergic reactions to anchovies are aware that these products should not be consumed. This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product because of the presence in a product of very small amounts of the undeclared allergens are typically associated with milder human reactions. A recall was not requested because the products are not currently available for sale to consumers.
The RTE beef jerky products were produced from October 20, 2020 through January 12, 2021 and have a one-year shelf life. The product labeled as “CHARLIE BROWN FARMS PREMIUM BEEF JERKY Original Prime Rib” contains Worcestershire, which is not listed as an ingredient, but was utilized in the product formulation.

“I had the Pfizer shot on 2/25/21. Within 15 minutes of receiving the shot I felt a slight itching sensation between my upper lip and nose. After 45 minutes, my whole face, feet and hands were itching. My hands and feet became red and swollen. My tongue also started to swell.
I went to the ER a... nd was treated with Prednisone, Pepcid, and Benadryl. After 3 hours I was released with a prescription for Prednisone.
By Saturday morning the same effects were repeating themselves to an increased degree, as well as a hoarseness when I spoke. I went to an urgent care clinic, since the hospital had told me to see my doctor, who wasn’t available on Saturday.
I was put on a combination of Famotidine, Hydroxyzine HCL, and Zyrtec for 7 days. As the swelling and itching have been decreasing, I have been able to reduce the medications. ”

“Moderna covid vaccine, 1st dose. Recieved 3/1/2021. 45 min after vaccine got an allergic reaction hives and red rash all over neck, face, throat swelled, and stomach pains. Took benadryl approx 30 min symptoms started to decrease. Still had a mild headache, right abdominal pain and about 6 hours lat... er rash and itchiness returned. Took more benadryl and fell asleep. Woke up the next morning (day 2) about 630am itchy and red, took a regular antihistamines (1 a day) felt good till about 130pm rash started all over got chills, fever, body aches, felt heavy and tired and stomach pains as well as headache. Took tylenol and benadryl and tried to sleep. Next day (day 3) felt a bit better. Redness still appeared on chest, throat and face, throat feels scratchy and sore and still have a headache. Took a 1 a day allergy pill and felt better. At about 2pm had to take some benadryl. Bodyaches almost gone all the way and no fever or chills today. Throat still scratchy drinking lots of tea with lemon and honey and benadryl, tylenol, and allergy pills are my best friend right now. Waiting to speak with an allergen specialist in regards to this reaction. Most likely not getting a second dose. Stay safe out there and becareful if you get the vaccine. I have regular seasonal allergies, allergic to 2 different antibiotics (penicillin and Trimethoprim / Sulfamethoxazole), sulfate, asparagus, and mustard. ”
