A national recall has been announced for more than a thousand pounds of a popular beef jerky product that may contain known allergens.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Whip City Jerky, a Westfield, Mass. company, is recalling 1,391 pounds of products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

Officials said that the jerky contains milk, which is not declared on the product label. The contaminated products were produced between Dec. 18 last year and Jan. 31. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 00948M” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during routine verification activities.

There have been no confirmed reports of any adverse reactions due to consumption of the products, though health officials said that they should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase as a precaution.
