The year 2015 is officially the age of the food recall. Both Blue Bell and Sabra recalled their products after a listeria scare earlier this year, and Kraft recalled 6.5 million boxes of mac and cheese in fear that some contained “possible metal pieces.”
The latest food scare: Kraft Heinz, the owner of Oscar Mayer, is recalling over two million pounds of turkey bacon that may be “adulterated” and may therefore spoil before the best-by date. So if you’re currently eating Oscar Mayer turkey bacon that was produced between may 31st and August 6, put it down. It’s just not worth it.
The problem was discovered by Kraft “during an investigation into spoilage-related consumer complaints,” including reports of illness, according to an alert issued by the USDA. It seems like an appropriate time for those massive U.S. meat processing facilities to start cleaning up their act.
This news comes not long after Consumer Reports verified that close to 100% of the ground beef sold in the U.S. contains fecal bacteria. Do you feel confident about America’s food system right now? Us either.
