How long does bacon refrigerated bacon keep for?

Meats are kept better in the freezer. Meats can be kept in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days if raw and 1 to 2 days longer if cooked. Always place cooked meats in an airtight container.

Bacon however is pre-cooked in a smoker, so technically it should keep much longer. It is also vacuum-packed, so it won't oxygenate and lose flavor either. Unopened bacon should last almost a month in its original packaging, if not longer.

Check the expiration date on the package you bought, and if you've opened it already, don't count on it lasting for longer than about 4 days.
