I don't know about that.  I'm really careful with stuff like that.  Smell it.  If it smells ok it probably is.

Anything with meat in it, I wouldn't keep more than 4 or 5 days. I took a nutrition class, and the instructor, who was a nutritionist said to be careful because food can be bad before it smells bad, so I tend to be cautious. I don't like to waste food, but I'd rather waste it than make someone sick.

She also said that a high percentage of the stomach "bugs" that people think they get each year are really mild cases of food poisoning from eating things that either hadn't been handled properly or had been kept too long.
