AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN/WRIC) — Over two million pounds of turkey bacon have been recalled by the Kraft Heinz Foods Company, according to WRIC.

The products made between May 31, 2015 and Aug. 6, 2015 were recalled after consumer reports that the bacon may spoil before the “Best When Used By” date.

The recall was announced Aug. 25 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

WRIC listed the products subject to the recall:

  • 56 oz. cardboard boxes (containing four plastic wrapped packages) marked Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon” bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 4470007633 0, and with “Best When Used By” dates of 24 AUG 2015 through 26 OCT 2015.

The items with the number “P-9070” inside the mark of inspection by the USDA, and the line number “RS19” were shipped out nation-wide.

Reports of illness onset by consuming the bacon has led to an investigation. However, FSIS said that they have not received confirmations that sickness has developed as a direct byproduct of consuming the turkey bacon.

It is advised that anyone who might have consumed these products should contact their health care provider.
