There's A Time Limit For Storing Raw Bacon In The Freezer

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bacon lasts about a week in the fridge. If you store it in the freezer, it cannot last longer than a month.

When raw bacon sits in the freezer for over a month, its fat begins to spoil, which can make you sick. Cooked bacon can be frozen for longer, but it won't last forever.

When storing bacon in the fridge or freezer, place parchment or wax between each strip, as the slices can clump and turn into a frozen block if not separated.

Try flash-freezing each piece separately to minimize clumping, and keep slab bacon away from your freezer, as it can deteriorate rapidly when exposed to frigid temperatures.

Don't waste time thawing your bacon, either. Bacon's thin size allows it to crisp up even when covered in frost, and improper thawing can result in pathogens entering your food.
