Kraft Heinz is recalling 2,068,467 pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon products that may spoil before the "Best When Used By" date.

The company discovered the problem after consumers complained about the turkey bacon going bad before it was supposed to, and there have even been some reports of "illness related to the consumption of these products," according to a report from the USDA.
