WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- More than two million pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon has been recalled after the company received several reports of related illnesses.

Kraft Heinz, the parent company of Oscar Mayer, said it is recalling 2.1 million pounds of turkey bacon products "that may be adulterated because it may spoil before the 'best when used by' date."
