Bad meat??

I purchased some ground beef Monday night. I was in a hurry and didn't pay attention to the sell by date. I went to get the ground beef out of the fridge and it doesn't look to great. The sell by date says 8/26/13. Today is the 28th. Is the ground beef still safe to cook and eat? I looked online and it says that it is safe to eat for a couple of days after the sell by date but I am not sure.

Does this look bad? Or is it just this color because it has been in my fridge with no light?

Just going by the color I'd toss it. I auto put anything in not using that night in the freezer, I'm paranoid about eating rotten meat.

Smell it. That will tell you everything you need to know.

I don't think I would. It looks discolored. Smell it though.

That shit looks bad.

Don't push it. I gave myself food poisoning by making bad taco meat :/

It should be fine if you froze it.

It should be fine. Food doesn't automatically go back at 12:01 am on the day after the sell by date.

Open the package and look and smell the meat. If it looks fine (I think the color is off in the photo due to fridge and camera phone) and smells fine you will be ok.
