    Your friend could be allergic to any or all the ingredients in the beef jerky, and everybody is allergic to something, or MANY things. Now they know so avoid beef jerky.

    Is it the first time he's ate this jerky? If not, is there something else new that he tried within that time frame?

    Besides trial and error and a doctor's allergy panel, it is almost impossible to figure out what he reacted to.
