Curious Jerky News Stories

newspaperWith everything going on in the world, beef jerky rarely makes the news, but the following stories just go to show that there’s always 15 minutes of fame waiting out there for someone. Sometimes good . . . sometimes not so good.

Beef Jerky Scam

Would seem that some wanting to gather up dollars and then hit the road without fulfilling their commitment tried to do so through Kickstarter. If you’ve not heard of Kickstarter, it’s a website that allows people to ‘fund’ projects. These projects are typically creative art projects and that may be one reason the Kobe Beef Jerky project received extra scrutiny. Touted as beef jerky made from Kobe Beef, it didn’t take long for the group to gather up over $120,000 from over 3,000 backers. Fortunately the Kickstarter community was savvy enough to catch the scam and stop the transfer of funds in time.

Beef Jerky Recall

An Alabama beef jerky manufacturer recalled some 1,800 pounds of beef jerky due to mislabeling. Seems the product contained some ingredients that are considered allergens – but had not been shown on the ingredients label. Specifically, Worcestershire sauce and anchovy paste. The recalled products were manufactured until June of this year and distributed nationwide.

Assault Over Beef Jerky

Apparently the phrase ‘Don’t Mess with Texas’ could also be interpreted as ‘Don’t Mess with My Jerky’ if you live in California. It was reported that a woman living there took a baseball bat to her brother who she claimed stole her beef jerky. She was angry enough to cause him a broken arm sending him to the hospital and sending her to jail.

The Bucket List

Two friends decided to fulfill one item on their Bucket List by stealing beef jerky from Walmart? They was caught by a WM security person when one friend was seen chowing down on the product  in the store while the other was caught stuffing it into her purse and swimsuit. She goes shopping in a swimsuit????

Don’t know about that,  but I can sure think of a lot better things for my Bucket List – if I had one.
