Here is what I saw on their web page.

Slightly sweet and spicy-the crushed red pepper in this popular blend gives this jerky a kick! Ingredients: Sugar, Salt, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Monosodium Glutamate, Maltodextrin, Spices, Dehydrated Garlic, Oleoresin Paprika, may contain up to 2% silicon dioxide to prevent caking ALLERGENS PRESENT: Soy.

Please note: This product requires the use of a curing agent like our Tinted Cure #813 found in the Venison Seasonings section. Failure to use cure can result in serious health risks. For suggested formulations, see our Venison Formulations book by clicking here.

If you added the cure, your jerky should be fine.
