Bacon - how long does it keep in the fridge once defrosted?

I just defrosted a package of hickory smoked bacon. How long will it keep in the fridge once defrosted? Can I chop it up and put it in a container and use throughout out week>

After defrosting the package this can last up to 6-7 days. When you store unopened pack in the refrigerator, the bacon fridge life is about 1 – 2 weeks. If you prefer freezer for storage the unused pack you can keep it safe for the next 6 – 8 months without any trouble. If you want more about this you can check out: https://foodgear.org/how-long-does-bacon-last/, this site.

You should be good for a week to 10 days. If it smells funky when you open the pack, give it to the crows.
There must be a best by date on it
