Q: How long is bacon good for after freezing? Once it’s thawed in the fridge, how long will it stay good unopened?

Editor: According to the USDA, fresh or thawed bacon should be used within 7 days. Technically, frozen food will stay safe to eat nearly indefinitely, but for the sake of quality and taste we tend to freeze bacon no more than a few months.
