Is there a standard part of the turkey that they use to process "turkey bacon"? Is it pressed from different sections of the turkey?

Add "turkey" tag? –  Chris Simmons Jul 28 '10 at 20:28
    
Excellent title question, considering it's not turkey, and it's not bacon. –  Callithumpian May 30 '12 at 4:08

The meat for turkey bacon comes from the thigh of the turkey and can be cured or uncured, smoked, chopped, and reformed into strips that resemble traditional pork bacon.
