If you like having turkey bacon for breakfast, you better check to make sure it wasn’t recalled. Earlier this week, Kraft Heinz, the parent company of Oscar Mayer, recalled more than 2 million pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon after consumers reported becoming sick after eating certain items.
Kraft Heinz discovered the problem after receiving “spoilage-related consumer complaints.” The recalled turkey bacon was produced between May 31 and August 6, 2015 and had been exported nationwide. The turkey bacon may spoil before the “best used by” date.
The products affected by the recall include:
56 oz. cardboard boxes (containing four plastic wrapped packages) marked Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon” bearing the plant number P-9070, with “Best When Used By” dates of 24 AUG 2015 through 26 OCT 2015.
36 oz. cardboard boxes (containing three plastic wrapped packages) marked Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed” bearing the plant number P-9070, with “Best When Used By” dates of 28 AUG 2015 through 20 OCT 2015.
48 oz. cardboard boxes (containing four plastic wrapped packages) marked Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed” bearing the plant number P-9070, with “Best When Used By” dates of 3 SEPT 2015 through 30 OCT 2015.
There are three types of food recalls:
Class I - This is the most serious class because there is significant and immediate danger of death or other serious injury from eating the product being recalled.
Class II - This is an intermediate level recall and there is no immediate or perceived danger of any health issues. There is a remote chance of a health problem if the food is eaten.
Class III – This is the least serious of recalls where eating the product will not cause a health problem, but the product still is in violation of a federal regulation.
Fortunately, this recent turkey bacon recall is a Class II recall.
