    Question How long is it safe? (Deli meats)

    Probably the most mundane question you are likey to see on here.

    I don't eat deli meats myself, but do buy them for the family, and never know quite when they are 'past it' I am always really suspicious of the stuff, so probably biff the remains of it out far too soon.

    So, how long is it OK to store in the fridge? You know, shredded ham and that kind of stuff...

    Dont eat them myself, full of too many nasties and too processed...usually a sniff test would tell you if stuff like that is off (though some processed meats smell 'off' in the first place!!)

    Maybe a week, but it would depend on how fresh it was when you got it

    Good question... I've always wanted to know I am sure I throw it out too soon like you.

    I keep it in there till it starts getting a tad slimey. If I go to use it and it's slimey/is starting to sweat - it gets chucked.

    when i worked in a deli (15 Years ago but maybe things have changed now due to how they process things) after 3 days in the cabinet it would get thrown or reduced so if you buy meat thats on sale and its not in the catalogue its a good sign its ready to be thrown. i wont buy it now unless they cut it fresh for me then i know exactly how long its good for

    sassymummy is right though when its turning it tends to get a layer of slime on it
