·Deputy Editor

Now that’s a lot of recalled turkey bacon.

Kraft Heinz Food Company is recalling more than 2 million pounds — 2,068,467 pounds, to be exact — of its turkey bacon products because of spoilage issues.

The affected products may spoil before the “Best When Used By” date, and some have already been linked with spoilage-related complaints. While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to eating the turkey bacon, Kraft Heinz has received some illness reports linked to the consumption of the product.

The turkey bacon affected by the recall includes:
