Put Down That Beef Stick, It May Be Recalled Here in Minnesota
The USDA announced a recall of beef sticks in Minnesota and beyond, due to a health hazard situation where there's a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product. That's right out of the USDA's mouth, or keyboard, really.
Frickenschmidt Foods, a Lockwood, Mo. company, is recalling approximately 5,795 pounds of ready-to-eat beef stick products because "the product" is misbranded (they always call it "the product" or something sterile like that. It's never "the food". Not judging, just noticing). Turns out it has wheat in it but is called “gluten-free” on the label.
The ready-to-eat teriyaki beef stick items were packaged on Nov. 30, 2021, Dec. 1, 2021, and Jan. 28, 2021. (Mmmm...now they're items!)
No one is confirmed to have been made sick...but you know, better safe than sorry. "Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase."
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Steven Ogden, Production Manager, Frickenschmidt Foods LLC at 417-232-4401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Note: Frickenschmidt Foods? Fricken schmidt??? Sure that could be someone's name, but it also sounds awful close to a name chosen by 3 15-year-old boys with too much Mountain Dew in 'em.

Sure it's Cold, But Is It THIS Cold?
We're far from the coldest in the USA, even though I know it doesn't seem possible.
