No.The smoking and the saturation of salt in the bacon "cures" it.
No different than eating jerky or Porsicutto.
And the old story of pigs having worms is just that.Old news.
You can eat pork cooked rare if you like.It delicious.
"For many chefs and for many of us, medium-rare pork has been the norm for many years now. It’s not what the sternest health experts would recommend. It’s not anything that the U.S. Department of Agriculture would officially endorse. But trichinosis isn’t as much of a concern as it was decades ago — I don’t think there’s much dispute about that. And if medium-rare pork is a game of Russian roulette, well, I’m a lucky man who has never, ever encountered the loaded chamber. And I know many other diners just like me.
