The meat in question is Oscar Mayer turkey bacon, which according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture "may be adulterated because it may spoil before the ‘Best When Used By’ date." 

The affected turkey bacon was packaged between May 31 and August 6 of this year, and the products include: Oscar Mayer "Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon" bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 4470007633 0; Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon "Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed" bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154874 8; and Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon "Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed" bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154879 3.

If you think you may have already eaten the product, don't panic: It's classified as having a low health risk. In fact, this is considered a Class II recall, the middle level of three types, which means it's "a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product."

In other words, it's not fatal, but it's still best to return it for a refund if you haven't eaten it yet. Earlier this month Kraft issued a recall on its cheese slices after several consumers reported choking on the plastic wrappers.
