Kraft Heinz recalls 2M pounds of turkey bacon
The Kraft Heinz Foods Company has issued a recall for approximately 2.1 million pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon after people reported illnesses associated with consuming the products, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
FSIS said the bacon products may be adulterated because they may spoil before the “Best When Used By” date.
The turkey bacon—marked Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon,” and “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed,”—was produced between May 31 and Aug. 6.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-9070” inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as the line number “RS19”. These items were shipped nationwide and exported to the Bahamas and St. Martin.
The problem was discovered by the establishment during an investigation into spoilage-related consumer complaints. FSIS confirmed it has not received any confirmed reports of adverse reactions related to the consumption of these products. However, Kraft Heinz said it has received reports of illnesses.
