2 million pounds of bacon recalled by Kraft Heinz

A whopping 2 million pounds of turkey bacon has been recalled by Kraft Heinz after reports of sickness among some consumers. According to an alert from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on behalf of Kraft Heinz, the problem was discovered after complaints by consumers dealing with spoilage of the product. There were also reports of "illness related to the consumption of these products."

The recall was a Class II, which means there is a "remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product." The products included in the recall are those in the Oscar Mayer "Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed" and the "Selects -- Uncured Turkey Bacon" ranges.

The affected products were produced by Kraft Heinz between May 31 and Aug. 6. While the bacon was shipped across the U.S., it was also sent to St. Martin and the Bahamas.

Kraft Heinz, which is Oscar Mayer's parent company, said that some of the turkey bacon products could be "adulterated" and would not still be good by the "best when used by" dates. It's not known how many complaints were received or how many people were made sick from consuming these products.

When someone is injured because of a defective product, he or she may be able to seek compensation from the company responsible. Consumers have a right to products that will not make them suffer ill effects, especially when it comes to food items. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service issues food recalls based upon the danger to consumers.

An attorney who has litigated or settled product liability cases before can provide potential clients with additional information.
