BREAD RECALL: 

A broken light bulb is causing a recall of bread in 11 states due to the possibility of broken glass fragments in the bread.

The bread is sold under the names Sara Lee, Kroger, Bimbo, Nature’s Harvest, Great Value and L’Oven Fresh. The states are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Most of the brands are being recalled in fewer than those 11 states.

Bimbo Bakeries USA says there had been three reports of pieces of glass on the outside of the bread. There were no reported injuries.

Customers who bought the recalled bread can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

GREEN BEANS RECALL:

General Mills is recalling a “limited quantity” of frozen green beans after a package of them tested positive for listeria.

The voluntary recall involves 10-ounce bags of Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans with the “Better If Used By” dates of April 10 and April 11, 2016, General Mills said.

No other varieties or production dates of Cascadian Farm products are involved in the recall.

“No related illnesses have been reported in connection with this product,” General Mills said in a statement.

TURKEY BACON RECALL: 

Kraft Heinz Foods Company is recalling approximately 2,068,467 pounds of turkey bacon products that may be adulterated because it may spoil before the “Best When Used By” date, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The turkey bacon was produced between May 31, 2015, and August 6, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 56 oz. cardboard boxes (containing four plastic wrapped packages) marked Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon” bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 4470007633 0, and with “Best When Used By” dates of 24 AUG 2015 through 26 OCT 2015.
  • 36 oz. cardboard boxes (containing three plastic wrapped packages) marked 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 with “Best When Used By” dates of 28 AUG 2015 through 20 OCT 2015.
  • 48 oz. cardboard boxes (containing four plastic wrapped packages) marked 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, and with “Best When Used By” dates of 3 SEPT 2015 through 30 OCT 2015.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-9070” inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as the line number “RS19”. These items were shipped nationwide and exported to the Bahamas and St. Martin.

The problem was discovered by the establishment during an investigation into spoilage-related consumer complaints.
