Kraft Heinz launched a recall of more than 2 million lbs. of turkey bacon products.
Kraft Heinz received some complaints of consumer illnesses related to its Oscar Mayer turkey bacon products.

WASHINGTON – More than 2 million lbs. of turkey bacon produced at a Kraft Heinz Foods Company, Newberry, SC plant are subject to a recall after the company received consumer complaints of spoilage before the “Best When Used By” date, the Food Safety Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture reported.

FSIS said Kraft Heinz has received reports of illness related to consumption of the turkey bacon, although the agency has received no reports. Kraft Heinz discovered the problem during its own investigation of spoilage-related consumer complaints, FSIS noted.

The affected products include:
