You probably could. The trichinosis issue is pretty much gone, but there are other critters out there. "Cured" bacon, at least supermarket bacon, is not a truly cured product, like fully cured and smoked sausage, country ham, Prosciutto, etc--all of which can safely be consumed "raw"
My test is this, if it can be stored without refrigeration, it is safe to eat "raw".

Just my nickle's worth.
