Kraft Recalls Over 2 Million Pounds Of Turkey Bacon

Looks like you'll need a new breakfast option.

It might be time to temporarily lay off the turkey bacon: Oscar Meyer's parent company Kraft Heinz recalled 84,000 cases of turkey bacon on Tuesday. That's over two million pounds of meat.

The recall came after complaints started rolling in about "illness related to the consumption of these products," according to a statement from the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service. Specifically, Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon may be spoiling before its "best by" date.

"The Kraft Heinz Company is voluntarily withdrawing approximately 84,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon due to the possibility that some product may spoil before the 'Best When Used By' date," Kraft Heinz spokesman Michael Mullen told The Huffington Post. "Although this premature spoilage is not a food safety issue, the affected product may not deliver the high quality taste, texture and appearance our consumers expect from Oscar Mayer. We regret this situation and we apologize to everyone we have disappointed."

Want to know if your turkey bacon was recalled? Here are the specific packages involved, including "best when used by" dates and manufacturing codes:

4-pack (56 oz.) size of Oscar Mayer Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon

Earlier this month, the company recalled 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles because of the possibility of that little strip of packaging film sticking to the cheese.

"If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard," the company said in a press release.

Better safe than sorry.
