you know how it says on the package to throw it away after a week of being open, do you really throw it out then? how long do you keep it?

  • i don't buy bologna
    but if i did i would keep it until it got slimy or smelled bad.
    When it comes to food, i go by my instincts. Seems to work out for us. I've never been sick from eating bad food.

  • i mean the date on it is good for another month but it says that after you open it it should be tossed after 7 days

  • I don't because I put it in a sandwich bag instead of leaving it out in the fridge. If you leave it out, it gets all hard and crusty and that's just ewwww.

  • I use a zip lock to keep it contained from air. It's fine as long as it's not getting crusty around the edges.

  • I don't buy it often, but when I do my kids eat a whole package in 2-3 days so how long you're supposed to keep it doesn't present any issues.
