Product Safety Notices & Recalls

At Big Y, our goal is to exceed our customers' evolving expectations by constantly seeking better ways to create and deliver world class service and value. This makes food safety a priority for us. We maintain the highest standards of performance in all areas of our Big Y Locations especially when it comes to the well-being of our community.

Market Withdrawal: occurs when a product has a minor concern that would not be subject to FDA nor USDA legal action. For example, if a product did not have the correct consistency or color and did not meet the company's quality expectations.

Upton’s Naturals Seitan Bacon Withdrawal

July 10, 2023


Big Y Foods is issuing a market withdrawal for a single production lot of Upton’s Naturals Seitan Bacon (UPC 70510586107) for having a wrong expiration date. This one lot was double stamped with the date, where it appears to read the year ‘2028’ instead of ‘2023’. There is not a food safety issue.

Upon returning the product to your local Big Y or with the proof of purchase (if the product was discarded), you will receive a full refund.

The following products are sold at Big Y:  

Product Name  UPC Size Sell-by Date
Upton’s Naturals Seitan Bacon 70510586107 5oz 8/21/28


Consumers with questions may contact Mary Schenone from Upton’s Naturals at 209-483-7959 Monday – Friday from 11am-8pm EST or mary@growbrandmanagement.com.
