Donald Trump Jr. Trolls Vegetarians: 'There Hasn't Been One Single Bacon Recall in 2018'—There Has

Donald Trump Jr. had a go at trolling vegetarians, suggesting that following the recalls affecting vegetable produce across the country, people should eat bacon instead.

On Monday, the eldest son of President Donald Trump reposted a picture on Instagram that was originally shared by an account under the name "Savoy Leather."

The picture shows a tray stacked with dozens of bacon rashers, with a caption reading, "There hasn't been one single bacon recall in 2018, but there have been several vegetables recalls…Just saying."

The "Savoy Leather" profile is the Instagram account of its namesake company, an American producer of custom leather holsters.

However, Trump Jr.'s tongue-in-cheek dig at vegetarians was misguided, as numerous bacon products have been recalled countrywide in 2018.

Last month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Ukrop's Homestyle Foods had voluntarily chosen to recall its baked potatoes with cheddar cheese and bacon, as the product was mislabeled as "herb-roasted potatoes."

In October, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported that several ready-to-eat meat and poultry products found in Harris Teeter and Trader Joe's stores nationwide, including its Bacon, Egg and Cheese Burrito, were being recalled due to possible salmonella and listeria contamination.

And bacon isn't the only pork product to be hit. In November, nearly 30,000 pounds of sausage were taken off the market amid fears the products contained pieces of metal.

The United States Department of Agriculture announced that 23.4-oz. Jimmy Dean Heat 'n Serve Original Sausage Links, made with pork and turkey, could contain pieces of metal.

In other recall news, last week, residents nationwide were asked to check their pantries and shelves for Del Monte canned corn after underprocessing issues sparked health concerns.

The FDA's recall on Wednesday included 64,242 cases of Fiesta Corn seasoned with red and green peppers. The recall was issued due to underprocessing during the commercial sterilization process, which could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens.

No illnesses associated with the recalled products have been reported, but if the products are consumed, the contamination could result in life-threatening illness. Spoilage microorganisms cause food to spoil and are not harmful to humans, according to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Pathogenic microorganisms, if consumed, are what can cause a human to become sick.
