doesnt this seem a bit off ? its good for that long sealed and in the fridge ..
In the freezer. I would and do leave bacon and hot dogs in the freezer for a lot longer than that. The bacon is in it's original package, vacuum sealed. With cooked bacon, it doesn't last too long but I would not hesitate to leave it in for a couple of months.
I buy my favorite hot dogs in a 5 pound bag and individually wrap them in plastic and put them into a plastic freezer bag. They will be remain perfect for many months.
In general, my opinion is that recommended freezer times are a lot shorter than I'm comfortable with.
It's really a matter of texture and taste rather than spoilage.
