Thanks for writing your query.

Bacons are stored in refrigation, but slab bacons contain more fat and more salt so refrigeration is usually not recommended as on freezing, it can becomes rancid easily due to presence of more salt.

Generally, the symptoms you should watch out for are vomiting, pain abdomen and loose motions.

If these symptoms develop you should get yourself examined at the Emergency Department.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any query, I will be happy to help.
