5 days old steak, Ok to eat?

Anarkya | Sep 30, 2010 01:01 PM

My grocery store is being renovated and 2 days ago I went and bought steaks. I never have problems with the packing date, but yesterday I noticed that the steak were packed on Sept 25th after they change color sooner than usual.

Are the steaks ok to cook anyways? I know the color change is usually do to the red thing they put in the meat, but I've never waited that long to cook steaks, I've never had problems with the packing date with my grocery store before, hence I'm asking.

Thank you.
