Other than the Whole30 approved bacon from US Wellness Meats (link provided by melindalucille), you need to read the ingredient labels of all other products. History has shown that some manufacturers have different ingredients in different regions.

Read the label at your store, but I believe Pederson's bacon (I've seen it at Whole Foods) should be compliant.
Yes they do have a compliant version... No sugar no nitrates... Purchased 2 packs tonight at whole foods!!
They also have two non compliant versions at Whole Foods by Pedersons... But the complaint version has "Paleo" in a little circle on it...

I've always ordered bacon from US Wellness, but now I have something to keep an eye out for in Whole Foods! Thanks for asking the question
My mom is also a big fan of the hot dogs from US Wellness, but I have always just picked up a pack of applegate farms if I was feeling the craving. I agree with Chris, read the labels, they have lots of varieties and I've found what I can get in NC sometimes has different ingredients than what my sister in law buys in IL. Strange, but true.

Re: the Pederson's bacon - only the no-sugar variety that says "Paleo" on the package is compliant. All the others have sugar. :-(
ETA: Oops, I see someone already mentioned this above...

I'm not sure about the bacon, but as for the hot dogs, you might be able to use Hebrew National. It's 100% kosher, with no added fillers, by-products, artificial colors, or flavors. You'll have to check the ingredients, but I know they're good for people with Soy allergies. My son was Milk Soy Protein Intolerant for a while, and those were the only hot dogs that he could eat.
Have a great day.

Remember that Edison didn't discover the filament for a light bulb right away. He said "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.", and he also said "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."

Had the same bacon dilemma yesterday -- found an Applegates Farm turkey version and lable said "may contain less than 2% of the following" and that list included maple sugar. Non-compliant, right? Even at less than 2%?

right. sugar in any amount is not approved. I know, people love their bacon, but honestly the best quality bacon i can get locally has sugar (happy pigs, sustainable practices) so I just don't eat it during the whole30. Post-whole30, it's still there if I want some . Prosciutto is less likely to have sugar (I can find compliant prosciutto pretty easily), and works well as a sub in recipes.

Whole foods carries Pedersons Brand bacon which makes a sugar free Paleo variety - I buy it all the time, very good!

I don't care what I can't eat as long as I feel better.
First Whole30 started August 1, 2014.
