Recall of JoKir’s Canned Meat

(KHBT) — JoKir’s Wild Beef in Gilmore City, IA today announced a voluntary recall of all canned meat food products. There is reasonable probability that the products could cause serious, adverse health consequences, and are thus considered adulterated under the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA).  The main potential health hazard with this product is Clostridium botulinum.

At this time, the estimated amount of product subject to recall that was distributed is unknown.  In addition, the ability of consumers or users of the product to identify the products covered by the recall may be difficult as it is likely that the canned meat food products are not properly labeled/identified.

If you have purchased any canned meat from this facility, we recommend the products not be consumed. All products can be returned to JoKir’s Wild Beef or customers can call the company at 515-332-2608 for more information regarding the recall.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Meat and Poultry Inspection Bureau received information about the product from a third party and then conducted an investigation to determine if the business was selling canned meat to consumers. To date there have been no reported illnesses linked to the product.
