    This webpage has been so very useful for me...it shows the dates for keeping all kinds of foods, both in freezer and in fridge!

  • i don't know the specifics, i do know if its frozen before that date its fine afterwards. as far as if its just been in the fridge, i won't mess with it if its been more than a week or if it looks/smells funny.

  • I wouldn't mess with it more than a few days after the expiration date.
