Sure, turkey bacon is much healthier for you than the pork variety, but not this week. Oscar Mayer and Kraft, the parent company, is recalling two million pounds of turkey bacon because the meat may spoil before its "best when used by" date, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
The recall came after several people complained to Kraft that the meat was spoiling well before the date stamped on the package. So far, the USDA is labeling this recall a class II, which means there's only a remote chance of getting food poisoning from eating it. That's good news if you've already served up bacon and eggs this morning. Still, it's best to toss the rest of the package in the trash if you have any one of the following Oscar Mayer products in your fridge:
