It's the biggest slice of bacon in the world!

If you love bacon, this story is for you! A Lebanon, Pennsylvania meat factory has succeeded in its bid to make the Guinness Book of World Records on Wednesday by creating the world's longest piece of turkey bacon. (Okay, is turkey bacon actually bacon?!) But I digress. 

Godshall's Quality Meats celebrated both the longest day of the year and National Turkey Lovers Month by creating a 17-foot and three-quarter inch long, 23-inch wide slice of turkey bacon at its Weavertown Road facility in Lebanon.

The piece took the cooperation of more than two dozen Godshall's team members to create and is over 1,000 times larger than a regular slice of turkey bacon, the company said. It was wood smoked for over six hours in an enormous oven that is over 25 feet long and 10 feet wide.

Afterward determining the record had been broken, the enormous slice was cut up and served at a BLT luncheon for hundreds of Godshall's employees and local dignitaries to enjoy. The remainder was packaged up for employees and a local food bank to receive, the company said.
