Over 185,000 Pounds Popular Bacon Is Being Recalled
Oscar Meyer, Hormel, Hatfield, Smithfield, and others are popular bacon brands.
One corporation is facing another setback after contributing to pricing and quantity fluctuations in recent years.
Over 185,000 pounds of its ready-to-eat bacon topping bits are being recalled.
Smithfield recalled five 5-pound packs of Golden Crips, Smithfield, and Member's Mark precooked bacon topping on May 20. The items "may contain metal," it states.
FSIS said it "expects there to be other items containing the bacon" and that consumers should check periodically for updates.
The 5-pound boxes were made Feb. 21-23 and March 3-5 and have EST. 27384 on them.
FSIS says a consumer reported finding metal in one of the bacon items, but no injuries or illnesses have been recorded.
FSIS is worried that some of the recalled goods may be in customers' kitchens. The alert warns consumers not to ingest the items. "Trash or return these items"
An investigation discovered that Smithfield, Tyson, Cargill, and other meat businesses misled about shortages to keep operations operating during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The audit argues dangerous circumstances contributed to 250 worker deaths and high corporation profits.
