I would have eaten it too. Bacon is cured really well and I doubt 12 hours at below room temp is going to spoil bacon in a sealed package

Remember that curing meat has been done LONG before refrigeration came along.

That doesn't matter. It's still raw. If raw meat of any kind is left out at 40 degrees or more for over four hours, it should be thrown out because of the risk of toxic bacteria build up. I didn't just pull that out of thin air. I would never guess on meat. You may be fine, you may not.

But that is dry curing. The type of curing that is done with typical american store bought bacon is NOT dry curing. It is not safe to leave out without refridgeration. You cannot compare store bought bacon with bacon that people cured back in the pioneer days.

I do understand the whole bacteria growth process and I wouldn't have fed it to my kids, but I would've eaten it and wouldn't have thought twice.
