Krave Jerky has issued a recall for its Garlic Chili Pepper Beef Jerky following safety concerns with the project, according to the Monterey County Health Department. 

That variety of beef jerky may contain impacted product from the Petaluma-based Rancho Feeding Corporation recall, county health officials said. 
The affected product is Krave Garlic Chili Pepper Beef Jerky 3.25 oz, UPC 55002 00306 and will bear an establishment mark of EST 18951, according to county health officials. No other Krave products have been affected by the recall. 
The product was distributed nationwide through retail establishments and online. Customers with questions may call the company at (877) 268-1150. 
Rancho Feeding Corporation earlier this year recalled about 8,742,700 pounds of meat products because it processed diseased and unsound animals without proper federal inspection.

Beef carcasses and boxes from the Rancho Feeding Corporation recall bear the establishment No. "EST. 527" inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each box bears the case code number ending in "3" or "4." The products were produced Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide. 
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health provider.

ok no illnesses reported. the beef has a USDA mark of inspection, and the beef is from a WHOLE YEARS worth of processing. does anything sound weird to you? 8,700,000 lbs of beef that has probably already been consumed. why is it being recalled? the only way of identifying the beef is from the boxes it was shipped in from Rancho. Most of this meat has already been secondarily processed, repackaged, sent to distribution and then to stores and most of all already been eaten. let me ask you if you have any beef in your fridge from last year..... and if you did would you know it came from Rancho?
