Food giant Kraft Heinz announced late Tuesday that it is recalling more than 2 million pounds of bacon that while fresh on the shelves could spoil prematurely, well ahead of the best before date printed on the package.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said that exactly 2,068,467 pounds of Oscar Mayer brand turkey bacon “may be adulterated because it may spoil before the ‘Best When Used By’ date.” According to the the USDA, the company became aware of the problem after it received “spoilage-related consumer complaints.”

The recalled turkey bacon was produced between May 31st and August 6th of this year, and carries the following brand names:

  • Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon”
  • Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed”
  • Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed”
  • This recall carries a ‘Class II’ designation, the middle level of three. The USDA defines this as “a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.”

    Consumers can return the affected products to their local grocery stores for an exchange or refund.
