Q: I received 2 1-lb. packages of your smoked bacon for Christmas and in the madness of the holidays, they got buried in the refrigerator. They are vacuum packed and have never been opened, but I cannot find any kind of date on them. There is a number stamped on them: 0311 1 Is it still good or should I (sadly) dispose of it? Thanks.

A: Thanks for your question, Kathy. Our smoked bacon should be used within 45 days if simply kept in the refrigerator. I completely understand about the madness of the holidays and how things can get buried, but unfortunately, I would recommend disposing of it after this long of time.

Q: What type of packaging is used to ship bacon in the summer to a city that averages 95 degress. Chilled in styrofoam...or? Need answer asap for July 2015 birthday gift. Thank you

A: Our smoked bacon travels quite well and can take some heat in the two days it travels from our shop in Iowa to all locations around the country. In the summertime, we do pack in a cooler with either a gel pack or small piece of dry ice. We'll get it there safely!

Q: Is your smoked bacon sampler packaged in a gift box altogether or is it shipped separately? We will need about 2 dozen samplers and want to make sure they are in boxes.
Answered by Amana Meat Shop, December 11, 2017 at 05:30:15 PM EST.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. We pack the 4 pounds of bacon together in a gift box, so for multiple boxes, they would be packed 4 per box in separate boxes. Call us at 800-373-6328 if you have further questions.
