Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Bacon Bits are subject to this recall:

  • Uncured Bacon Bits, 0.5-ounce packages

According to the USDA, the product was produced on various dates from January 15, 2015, through March 10, 2015, and bears the establishment number “Est. 45361” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The product was shipped to other manufacturers in North Carolina and Ohio for further processing into salad kits.

The problem was discovered when a Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) inspector was reviewing labels and noticed that the soy ingredient was not on the ingredients list. The FSIS inspector found that a releasing agent used on contact surfaces during production included soy lecithin, which was not disclosed on the product label.
