Our turkey bacon is not fully cooked and should be cooked thoroughly before consuming.
We recommend following the cooking instructions on the package and additional methods may be found in this article, How Should I Cook Applegate Products?.
Turkey bacon may appear as if it is cooked because it is processed slightly differently than pork bacon. Applegate turkey bacon is held in the smokehouse for a longer period of time than pork bacon, which starts to “set” the protein. This protein “setting” is required for accurate and consistent slicing. However Applegate turkey bacon is never considered “fully cooked” and should be treated as any other raw cut of meat.
