Bacon should not be kept for more than one to two weeks. The expiry date on prepacked bacon may state a longer period, but once the packet has been opened, use the meat quickly. Put loose bacon in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Vacumm packed bacon joints can be frozen for up to three months, vacumm packed rashers for four to six weeks while home packed rashers for four weeks (interleave rashers with freezer wrap to separate them easily, then store in a freezer bag).
Rasher can be grilled or fried from frozen, but bacon joints should be thawed overnight in the refrigerator.
