We bought some mince meat on Friday and put it in the fridge to be seperated. Well we forgot about it until this morning. Would it still be safe to use? It doesn't smell at all. Would you use it?

yup should be fine.
If it doesnt smell or is over BROWN it will be fine.
Its been in the fridge the WHOLE time (as in not defrosted on the bench for any length of time)?? If so, it will be fine.
What do you mean by seperated?? Do you mean portioned up to freeze?? If so, when you defrost it make sure you do so in the fridge, not the bench, just to make sure!

Where did you buy it from? The butchers don't usually add anything to the meat, it sells out everyday so it's fresh everyday and therefore won't keep as long as packaged supermarket mince. (that's at my butchers)
But if it's only been 2 days and it looks ok and smells ok, it should be ok. (but again depends if it's been treated and where it's from)

I'm really particular about meat, if its been frozen then defrosted and its been in the fridge then it needs to be eaten within 24hrs. If its never been frozen and its fresh then no more than 48hrs (though most times I'll still be very wary)

I would use it - 3days in my guideline - so long as it smells ok and is then cooked.
Just use your best judgement.
I wouldn't freeze it, I would use it all up (even if you cook and then freeze the 3nd half)

no issues here. I cook my food till its really really dead so I dont mind letting it go for a few more days in the fridge.
