Here I was thinking, "who kept screenshots of the bacon on the ship?"
Of course, one of our guildies. =P
Noticed on the first day after the update as well. He must really check every day...

While the arteries maybe clearing in our mortal bodies; the strong flow of blood through our veins only serves to remind us of how bland and duller our lives have become. While cravings had been kept in check for a time, there’s tension in the air as thick as a slice of peameal.
A barbarian on the ship has burnt his tongue trying to lick the remnants on the skillet clean. The healer on board refuses to cast the spell heroes’ feast; lamenting that even her god cannot provide her with the salty and smokey pork delicacy. Most disturbing of all, the necromancer has taken large quantities of spam into his hold promising to rectify the situation. The sounds of his incantations and dark spirits are only broken by the sounds of explosions, and horrible wailing... followed by his frustrated curses.
This does not bode well I fear we haven’t too much time, even the venison from the foot hills Storm Horns are not enough to satiate this crowd. Time will tell what, or who breaks first.
In the first part of the quest The Snitch, after you go into the tavern and confront Roderic Nettle the first time, and he runs down into the basement......
When you follow, you will see that there are two (or maybe 3, I forget) big pans down there cooking big, succulent strips of bacon.
All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast. I know this because Fred told me so, and Mind Flayers are smart.
As soon as we were given word that this "snitch" has bacon the realms of Eberron and Faerûn are put under a blockade and no one can enter either realm. The masters of this ba-conspiracy are powerful beings indeed!
See turbine this is what happens when I can't play.
So, two patches and still no bacon. Now I'm curious!
Obviously there was a deliberate decision to remove it - either a rogue dev changed the graphic or most likely a dev following orders from the powers that be. If it was a rogue dev, you would have quickly put it back, so I reckon it was the powers that be. I'm also guessing that either there was no discussion, or the discussion was not to be discussed with the public.
So what is the problem with bacon?
Is it a cultural sensitivity issue? Are we quietly removing all references to pork? Are tasty hams going away as well? Will the dogs on Nash's farm now be tamed with a package of "puppy chow"? Some religions forbid eating pork. Of course some religions forbid eating meat. Few have a problem with vegetables.
How about you put some broccoli in there, so nobody gets offended? Look you took it out. You really ought to put something in there to replace it. One stick of broccoli for small ships, two for medium ships and three for large ships. Don't just be quietly sneaking the bacon out. If you don't like bacon, at least give us some broccoli!
And what about tasty hams?? ...tasty yams?
Sorry! I don't want any adventures, thank you. Not Today. Good morning! But please come to tea -any time you like! Why not tomorrow? Good bye!

Kargon, the pork-prophet and lover of Tasty Ham, has come back from the dead. His ghost has possessed a developer and is working with the Hall of Doom, to have all remaining pork diverted to the Kobold Union in the construction of Epic Waterworks.
The bacon is just the first step in their evil plan.
I assure you, no dev would deliberately deprive people of their bacon. I will look into the status of this today, but it's likely that the work to fix this just hasn't been able to be fit in against other priorities.
The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)
maybe it should be replaced with faken (tofu bacon) or ICBINB (JUST KIDDING!!!)
but since Turbine is Boston - should add some ale and beans to that bacon!
