Is my ham from Easter still good to eat?

It has been in a bowl covered with tinfoil, but I don't know when it is suppose to be thrown out.

  • I usually throw stuff away after 3 days, but I think it's usually good for 5?

  • if you use it cook it extra hot to kill bacteria..the longer food sits in the fridge the more the bacteria grows
    also how long did it sit out before it was put in the fridge? that makes a difference as well
