Bloated Hot Dog package?

My hot dog package is bloated. The seal is intact, it's just puffed up. Still well before the expiration date. Is it safe?

Possibly not. The package might be before the expiration date, but if it was not held in proper refrigeration at some point that would shorten its storage life. Breakdown of either protein or fat can release gases that are pressurizing the package, instead of the normal vacuum pack.

I've had that with packaged turkey slices from Costco. I took it back all puffed up and they handled it like it was a bomb! I wouldn't open it and certainly wouldn't eat it.

People should spend a coupe of hours perusing 'what can happen with bad food' stories. Might not be so cavalier afterward.

Just encountered one in the wild, in the back of my fridge. Tossed.

Thanks. We figured as much and called the bomb squad to detonate it.

Hurry up and eat it before it gets even bigger !

LOL, now I wouldn't even stick a fork in it.
Any recalls ?
Otherwise I'd put it in the freezer until trash day.
Maybe put a skull and crossbones on it with a sharpie.

If your hot dog is bloated for more than six hours, see a doctor

Is it safe?

No.

I had this issue with sliced ham from Safeway, though it was just passed the Best By Date.

As it was a quantity of ham, that BBD goes out the window once a product is opened. Then it's exposed to the air an anything floating in it, especially from science projects in the back of the fridge. So it's important to keep packages sealed. I 'burp' them, hoping that will help.

I had this happen with a second package. I opened it and hadn't finished the slices in this one either. It bloated like fugu and I tossed it.

As yours wasn't even open, I'd take it back to the store and ask them 'WTW?!'

Last word. We contacted the Meat Hotline.

Thank you for writing the USDA’s Meat and Poultry Hotline.
If the package has swollen up you should not use the hotdogs. There are some spoilage bacteria that produce a gas when they multiply. These hot dogs are not safe to eat.
Sincerely,
Meat and Poultry Hotline Webmaster
To speak to a Food Safety Specialist,
call the Hotline at 1-888-674-6854

Your topic seemed a little like you were body shaming your encased meat product.

Don't be such a wiener, just eat them. Can I have your computer when your gone?

And "Bloated Hot Dog Package" sounds like a decent punk rock band name.

More like some cover band.
