LISLE, Ill. – Eckrich has released a new deli meat line made with real bacon, the company announced May 7.

Bacon Lovers Deli Meats is available in five flavors: Bacon Covered Ham, Bacon Ranch Chicken Breast, Bacon Covered Club, Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast with Bacon and Peppered Bacon Covered Roast.

"'Bacon Mania' certainly has swept the nation, but more than launching a bacon-inspired product line, we are driving innovation in the deli," said Charles Gitkin, vice president, marketing, R&D and innovation for the John Morrell Food Group.

Eckrich is part of John Morrell Food Group, which is a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods.
