    @Gadsie it is probably safe but only you can make that call if you are going to eat it or not.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Food does not magicly turn bad on the expiry day. It slowly deteriorates from the day it was packaged/produced. Food regulations build in a cushion on the expiry date. If it has a long expiry date (like bacon)you are usually safe eating it for some time after the expiry date. If it has a short expiry date (say milk) you have less leeway after the expiry date. Remember these dates are based on optimal storage conditions so some foods can be bad before the expiry date - most of us have experienced milk gone off before the expiry date. Freezing can extent the life of foods obviously, so if you hit a bacon sale you can freeze and use well past the expiry date.
    Food poisoning tends to come more from contaminated fresh food like fruits vegetable and fresh meat.

    There's usually a 'best before' date.....but there's never a "bad after" date.....

    listeria contamination can be a problem with cured meats.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
