Forgot I bought some pate in the reduced section and just found it. Dated 18th. Package hasn't been opened. Did some googling and advice is mixed... but now all I can think is I desperately want it. Will I die? be a good way to go though

Had horrific food poisoning from duck pate once, three days of constant v & d for me and DH. Lost half a stone though... personally I wouldn't!

I am usually completely contemptuous of sell by/use by dates but I'll always make an exception for pate and fish. 4 days over for pate is a bit too much I think

I'd be cautious of it - I've had bad food poisoning from pate.

Dammit. An old mn thread said 'oh it's fine just do the sniff test' but then someone mentioned Listeria which doesn't smell...
