| Food

Oscar Mayer may have a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A, but today is not its day for turkey bacon.

Kraft Heinz has recalled over 2 million pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon products because they may spoil before their "Best When Used By" date.

According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Services, 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 also exported to the Bahamas and St. Martin.

The turkey bacon, manufactured between May 31 and August 6, 2015, was invested due to several "spoilage-related consumer complaints."

The USDA has determined this case as a Class II recall, defined as "a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product."
