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>
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
depends if you have opened the package or not
Not opened it yet
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
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.
