SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah company is recalling about 90,000 pounds of beef jerky products that were mislabeled and didn't list on the packaging the ingredient soy lecithin, an allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's food safety service announced Tuesday that Salt Lake City-based Prime Snax Inc. is recalling products made before Feb. 2 that were shipped around the country.

The recall affects five of the company's beef jerky brands: Arizona Jacks, Desert Star, Southwest Trail, Terrell and Kettle Creek.

Officials say there have been no reports of adverse reactions to the products.

Prime Snax CEO Kevin Howard says the recall was voluntary and a technical labeling mistake.

He says soy lecithin is used as part of a cleaning procedure during production, and regulators informed the company it should be listed on the label.
