Never noticed that before.... I always think if bacon is off it's really sticky... So if it smells ok and isn't too sticky it should be fine
yeah it smells ok now it was just at first and it made the kitchen stink
oh well looks like i will have to pop to shops dont fancy chancing it

lol, on the packaging does it say that a smell maybe present on first opening and will go away after a while, some packaged meats have the this notice on their packaging also

All sealed meats have a strong smell when first open & should be rested for around 10 mins before using,Chicken is the worst.

If you can be bothered take it back the shop and complain, I would.

not worth the risk of a bad stomach for the sake of a pack of bacon, BIN IT!
will be full of bad bacteria that's what has caused the bad smell..

Was it stored in fridge next to say Onions or garlic ?
Strong light can turn bacon & of course stored at wrong temp.
#13
If it stank but looks okay, likely-hood it's been out of the fridge/chiller either in-store or at home.

Up to you but if it smells bad bin it or complain. Personally as long as it's cooked at a high temperature can't be to many problems with it.

Yep deffo. Most big shops have a "if you're not completely satisfied" return policy. Tell them what happened and how you can't eat it now :)
#20
where did it come from? I know that places like Tesco send meat off to be checked out if you take it back.I had that with some chicken once. I got a letter saying that it hadn't been harmful.

I would also use the bacon if smell has gone & is not discoloured or sticky.
I've had this a few times with bacon & never had any probs.

Good job your missus dont think that way! X)


Just cook and eat it OP. If you fall ill you know the smell was because it was off.

See if a dog will eat a rasher, they're good judges of whether meat is off or not.
