Question: Can you refreeze bacon?


Yes, whole or partial packages of uncooked bacon can be refrozen. Just wrap the bacon well to prevent freezer burn, and place it back in the freezer within three days of thawing.

Cooked bacon can also be refrozen successfully.

For more information about refreezing bacon and other foods, check out the USDA website:
