A Clarkson, WA establishment has recalled beef jerky products due to under processing and potential survival of pathogens in the meat. This recall is a reminder to those who dehydrate jerky at home to heat the meat to 160°F to eliminate potential E. coli bacteria. There are two methods to heat the meat. Choose one of the following:
- Boil the meat strips in the marinade prior to dehydrating for five minutes.
- After dehydrating, place the jerky on a cookie sheet and place in a preheated oven at 275°F for 10 minutes.
