Q: Are Bar-S products “ready-to-eat” or do they require cooking?

A: Our products, with the exception of bacon, are fully cooked and can be eaten cold out of the package. However, we recommend heating franks and sausages to 165 degrees for the best flavor and to reduce any possible contamination which may have occurred once the packages was opened. Once the product leaves our production facilities, we have no control over what happens to the product at the store level. For example, we cannot guarantee the package has been properly refrigerated at all times, and that the package seal has not been broken.

Q: How do you recommend cooking franks?

A: Our favorite way to cook franks is on a grill, but you can boil them in water or cook in the microwave. For best results, we recommend following the cooking instructions listed on the package.
