ANSWER: yes DETAILS: Hams may be fresh, cured, or cured-and-smoked. Ham is the cured leg of pork. Fresh ham is an uncured leg of pork. Fresh ham will bear the term "fres…h" as part of the product name and is an indication that the product is not cured. "Turkey" ham is a ready-to-eat product made from cured thigh meat of turkey. The term "turkey ham" is always followed by the statement "cured turkey thigh meat." The usual color for cured ham is deep rose or pink; fresh ham (which is not cured) has the pale pink or beige color of a fresh pork roast; country hams and prosciutto (which are dry cured) range from pink to a mahogany color. Hams are either ready to eat or not. Ready-to-eat hams include prosciutto and cooked hams; they can be eaten right out of the package. Fresh hams and hams that are only trichinae treated (which may include heating, freezing, or curing in the plant) must be cooked by the consumer before eating. Hams that must be cooked will bear cooking instructions and safe handling instructions. Hams that are not ready to eat, but have the appearance of ready-to-eat products, will bear a prominent statement on the principal display panel indicating the product needs cooking, e.g., "cook thoroughly." In addition, the label must bear cooking directions..
Yes, it is perfectly safe. Many people will tell you that pork/ham (including bacon) should not be fed to cats, because they cannot digest it properly. But I asked my vet abou…t it when I brought my cats in today, and she said it's a total myth that pork/ham is unhealthy for cats. There is no truth to it whatsoever.
some ham is cured but raw, like prosciutto. And that you may eat. Check the link before you eat it to be sure. And try to find the type of cured ham you are referring to.
No. Pork products (including ham) should be thoroughly cooked.
If you have kept it in the fridge it should be OK otherwise I would not touch it. crook ham can make you pretty crook
No it is not safe as it is raw meat.
Yes, why not.
Depends how long the best before date is.
Yes as long as it is fresh and fully cooked.
yes if it's not moldy.
Sure, just don't overcook or it will be TOO soft.
Meat is perfectly safe to eat as long as it's cooked.
The great thing with meat is that you can smell it if it has gone bad. If it smells sour after being defrosted throw it out. Otherwise it's good to go.
