Over 185,000 Pounds of This Popular Bacon Is Being Pulled From Grocery Shelves

Some of the biggest bacon brands at each grocery store include Oscar Meyer, Hormel, Hatfield, Smithfield, and more. They're responsible for much of the supply that has fluctuated in price and quantity for the last few years, and unfortunately, one company is facing another setback. Over 185,000 pounds of its ready-to-eat bacon topping pieces are part of a new recall because they could be dangerous to eat.

In a recall notice published by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on May 20, Smithfield details the issue surrounding five of its 5-pound packs of Golden Crips, Smithfield, and Member's Mark precooked bacon topping. The products "may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal," it says.

Although they were shipped to retailers—including Sam's Club—across the country but may not be for sale anymore, FSIS says it "expects there to be additional products containing the bacon" and that consumers should check frequently for more details as they arise.

The 5-pound boxes were produced between Feb. 21 and 23, and March 3 and 5 and have an establishment number of EST. 27384.

FSIS says the issue was discovered after a customer complained to the company that they found metal in one of the bacon products, however, no injuries or illnesses have been reported.

In addition to the expectation that more items will be recalled, FSIS is concerned that some of the products may be in consumers' kitchens. "Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them," the notice says. "These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase."

Smithfield made headlines earlier this month after an investigation found that it, along with Tyson, Cargill, and other meat companies, lied about shortages that could happen in order to keep manufacturing plants open during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report says the unsafe conditions led to over 250 employee deaths, as well as large company profits.

And unfortunately, this isn't the only meat sold at a store under the Walmart name that could be dangerous. If You Bought This Meat at Walmart, Throw It Out Now.
