The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said purchasers should avoid Piller's brand "Tastes Better than Bacon" hickory-smoked turkey bacon because of a possible contamination by Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
This is in addition to the two other meat products it warned about in connection with the same bacteria.
The federal agency has not received complaints from the consumption of this meat.
Consumers should not eat this product with a best before date of June 9, 2009.
Earlier this week, the CFIA also warned consumers about two other possibly listeria-contaminated meat products: Pillers "Tastes Better than Bacon" maple-flavoured smoked ham with best-before dates ranging from May 9 to May 26, and; Lean 'n' Tasty smoked ham maple flavour bacon-style slices with a best-before date of May 26.
For more information, people can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.
