Oscar Mayer Recalls Turkey Bacon After Illnesses Reported
Kraft Heinz has issued a recall for more than 2 million pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon after consumers have reported becoming sick, according to the United State Department of Agriculture.
In a press release, Kraft said the recall was issued because of products being “adulterated,” which would cause them to spoil early than the “best when used by” date listed on the package.
The problem was brought to the company’s attention after consumers reported illness after eating the products.
Products involved in the recall include “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon” as well as “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed” in packages of various sizes.
The recalled items, which were distributed nationwide, was produced between May 31 and Aug. 6.
