oh dear it's the baby cave and didn't check the use by date on a bacon joint. It's vacuum-packed in fridge and use by date was 15/09/2011...

It would be for slow cooker for family incl 2yo.

Cook it or chuck it?

I realised this morning that I've been feeding my 5 year old out of date ham all last week! He hasn't been ill so can't be that bad.

Have you tried sniffing the joint? I would be inclined to use it if it smells ok.

Nope it's still wrapped up in plastic (from sainsb). It looks ok but will unwrap&do the sniff test. Slow cooker on with a meal at moment so can always do it overnight I guess.

2yo isn't v well at moment anyway so suspect she won't eat it anyway!

I don't think I'd eat it. I'd give it to the cat.

I'd look at it and smell it and make my decision that way.
