Uh oh - I forgot the bacon

krissywats | May 10, 2005 05:24 PM

I planned to make a quiche a while back and completely forgot about some bacon I had in my refrigerator. The 'use by' date says May 3rd. I've never used 'old' bacon to my knowledge. Since I'm sure it's loaded with preservatives (a 'hickory smoked' kind) - can I still use it with minimal risk, do you think?

More importantly - how do I know if it's bad?

It's never been opened. Now I'm scared!!

Waiting for replies before I even move towards that bacon....
