To eat an out of date ready meal?

It’s a Tesco finest Mac and Cheese (only reason it’s finest is because they did a swap as they didn’t have the bog standard meal), so a vegetarian meal. And it’s two days out of date? It’s fine isn’t it?

I’m 14 weeks pregnant so a bit paranoid about this Listeria bug. And I’m also feeding it to our Swiss student who is rather not poison confused It’s looks lovely though...please say I can eat it.

I’m also a bit worried because it’s just a clip on lid, as opposed to that sealed plastic lid that the normal ready meals have.

I would eat it. There’s so much salt on those meals I don’t think they can go off. Plus there’s no meat in it.

If it says 'best before' it's fine to eat, 'use before' means the bacteria levels are too high after this date

I'm just recovering from food poisoning (no meat involved), so I would say don't risk it, personally.

It doesn’t have the film lid as such Bran.

I feared that might be the case Cats. It’s a ‘use by’ date.

Ok Kipper, you’ve definitely put me off now. Hope you’re feeling better! Beans on toast it is.

I would say absolutely ok if you weren’t pregnant. I would be a bit more careful though with a baby inside of course.
