If you wish to test it your GI tract will let you know...

You should be able to tell if it's ok or not.

I totally would.

CurlyWurlyCatcher Sun 28-May-17 14:31:50

If it smells alright and looks alright.. I totally would grin

Is it a 'best before' or a 'use by' date?
The super helpful helpful advert I heard on the radio yesterday advised that if it's the former then you can use your own judgement. Bacons probably fine, it's made to last.

I would if it still looks OK.

Off bacon smells and is slimy !!

Spanneroo Sun 28-May-17 14:38:05

You'll smell it if it's off. It absolutely stinks once it's gone!

Millionsmom Sun 28-May-17 14:38:11

If it smells fine and isn't 'sticky' I would use it - maybes get your DP to test it first?

It will be fine.

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sun 28-May-17 14:40:36

It's fine.

Once it goes grey chuck it out.

ComingUpTrumps Sun 28-May-17 14:44:02

I'd eat it if it looked and smelled okay OP grin

Floralnomad Sun 28-May-17 14:51:01

I rarely look at dates once things are in the house , if it looks ok , and smells ok it's probably ok .

DH (ex chef) says yes it'll be fine to use. You would be able to smell if it has gone off.

helenfagain Sun 28-May-17 15:34:23

It is unopened, will see how it smells when I open it!

Sparklingbrook Sun 28-May-17 15:36:01

If it's unopened it's even more likely to be fine.
