I had a piece of bacon which was good before i froze it. It has never been opened, but it has now gone past the experation date. Can i still eat it?

It
s been frozen all that time? It's probably fine, unless it's been in the freezer so long it's developed freezer burn. Food doesn't spoil in the freezer.

I always use my senses to tell if something is ok to eat. Expiration dates are a very inexact science and are designed only to cover the manufacturer from any liability. They are usually VERY conservative. Thaw it out, smell it, look at it and judge for yourself. I'd say its probably ok.

As long as it was frozen before the expiration date, and you eat it the day you thaw it you should be ok. Obviously if it smells or looks weird don't eat it. There are also charts online about how long you can freeze something.

Is it safe to eat would be a better question. One month past experation date.
