• It means there are 16 recommended serving sizes. Above that, it will list the serving size. Most likely, if it is presliced, it will list that serving size in slices. However, it may give you the weight of the serving.

• It means that there are 16 servings in the package. So if one slice = one serving then there should be 16 slices in the package. But sometimes it goes by weight, not slices. So if there is 1 pound (which is the same thing as 16 ounces) of turkey in the package, then it would mean that that each serving would weigh one ounce.

• You should be able to serve 16 servings out of that at 2oz per serving most likely. That is the recommended serving slice for people. Most people will bulk at only getting that amount of food thus all the over weight people out there in the world.

• I would venture to say that each serving is probably four ounces?

• I'd go with the first answer.
