Something else I should add, is that it has no nitrates in it.
What say you? Is it safe? or should I get rid of it.
Yep...It is not unlike leaving a Pork Butt out all night. No Cure? What temp was it smoked at and how long?...JJ
Unfortuantely I would be afraid of eating the meat. Your Mom like to eat Salads? Celery, Spinach, maybe Beets? Way more Nitrate/Nitrites in that stuff than in your Bacon...JJ
A little reading, although if like my Mom, she will be hard to sway... http://chriskresser.com/the-nitrate-and-nitrite-myth-another-reason-not-to-fear-bacon/
