How to Safely Store Bacon
Store unopened packages of bacon in the refrigerator until the "Use by Date" stamped on the package. Once opened, wrap tightly and refrigerate up to 1 week. To freeze bacon, wrap the unopened, vacuum-sealed package tightly in freezer-safe material, then freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
