I found an open package of bacon in my refrigerator. How long does an open package of bacon last in the refrigerator - a week, or more? I think my open package is about 3 weeks old and I hate to waste it.

As long as it isn't slimy or smelly it's good with me.

Yeah, it will get slimy before it gets smelly. Check the feel.

If you can easily scrape all the green off with a butter knife it’s okay. It’s when it starts getting green down below the surface you have to save it to go in the chili.

Chop it up, render out fat for other cooking use crispy bits to top them potatoes you have that sprouted like Jack's bean stalk.

A man would have eaten it all in less than 3 weeks!

God gave us brains too.

That's why I open stuff that's questionable under my wife's nose.

Hell I didn't know it was possible for a package of bacon to last 3 weeks.

I doesn't smell quite right - a bit slimy as well. I probably should toss it.

I would have eaten it all, but it got pushed to the back of the fridge and disappeared for a while.

Thanks for the info.

What are you planning on serving? E-coli pork? It’s $4/lb here. Toss it and go get another package.
