I bought lamb chunks from butcher on Thursday, it's been sat in it's bag at the bottom of the fridge since then & was hoping to slow cooker but forgot about it till today but will it be safe? It looks ok but I'm not sure?

I wouldn't even think about it. Sure they'll be fine.

I'm not sure! I would be reluctant if it's that many days but maybe I'm too fussy?...but isn't there a 'use by' date? I suppose you could smell & see confused

Thursday? I assume you mean Thursday as in 4 days ago, not the previous one? Of course it will be fine, it's been in the fridge hasn't it?
If you're not sure sniff it, it's one of the many reasons we have a sense of smell: "off" meat stinks.

Ok thank you guys yes this Thursday gone so just 4 days but I'd read somewhere that meat only keeps in the fridge for 3 days?! And I should have transferred into a clean container so it's not sat in its own blood from the butchers. This is pure bunkham, isn't it?! 😳

I'd use it after administration of a standard smell it and see test.
