Kraft Heinz Food Company is issuing a massive recall of turkey bacon products that may be adulterated because it may spoil before the "Best When Used By" date.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reports that over 2 million pounds of product are included in the recall.

The potentially tainted turkey bacon was produced between May 31, 2015 and August 6, 2015 and comes in three different kinds of packaging:

  • 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.
  • 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, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154874 8, and 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, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154879 3, and with "Best When Used By" dates of 3 SEPT 2015 through 30 OCT 2015.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "P-9070" inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as the line number "RS19." These items were shipped nationwide and exported to the Bahamas and St. Martin.

The problem was discovered by the establishment during an investigation into spoilage-related consumer complaints. Heinz has received multiple reports of illness related to the consumption of these products.
