Oscar Mayer Recalls 2 Million Pounds Of Turkey Bacon That May Spoil Before Its Time

someonethinkofthebaconCustomers have been contacting Kraft Heinz Foods about something unfortunate: their packages of turkey bacon were going bad long before the posted expiration dates. The company investigated these complaints, and the investigation has culminated in more than 2 million pounds of bacon being recalled because it too might go bad.

The recall includes both cured and uncured bacon, and the regular Oscar Mayer brand as well as the “Selects” nitrate-free version. If you have a package of turkey bacon in your fridge, here’s what to look for:

Oscar Mayer Selects Turkey Bacon: 56-ounce boxes with four packages. The “best by” date will be August 24 through October 26, 2015.

Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon: 36-ounce boxes containing three packages. The “best by” date will be August 28 through October 20, 2015.

Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon: 48-ounce boxes containing four packages. The “best by” date will be between September 3 and October 30, 2015.

All of the products that are part of this recall will be marked with the plant number P-9070, and line number RS19.

If you have any questions about the recall or about your personal bacon, contact Kraft Heinz at (800) 278-3403. The company told the USDA that they received some reports that eating the spoiled bacon made some customers sick.
