Health seekers fooling themselves with turkey "bacon" should be advised that Kraft Heinz Foods Company, who own the Oscar Meyer brand, have issued a massive recall of the poultry product. 2,068,467 pounds of turkey bacon may spoil before their Best By date, which could sicken consumers who eat the product. Shocking that you can't trust "smoked cured turkey chopped & formed" to mimic delicious pork belly to not make you ill.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered the issue when following up on complaints from consumers regarding the spoiled product. Upon discovery of the issue, HKFC recalled three different types of the packaged bacon of various sizes with Best When Used By Dates marked as the end of October. Though no serious adverse reactions have been reported, the company "has received reports of illness related to the consumption of these products."

Last year, Kraft issued a wiener recall that improperly marked packages of cheese dogs and regular hot dogs and earlier this year tried to pass off metal shards as mac & cheese.
