Meatball safety :)

Hi Chowhounds. Apologies for introducing myself with a dull and icky topic, but this is the only central location other than perhaps GardenWeb where I have seen sane and intelligent discussions about food safety.

The question: I've got some turkey meatballs in the fridge that were made in-house by a fairly reliable and VERY busy upscale/gourmet food market. They were bought six days ago (11/7). I live alone so I'm a little chaotic about eating. Trying to do better lately, because I cannot afford to throw away pricey prepared food, but obviously, I screwed up again.

If I reheat these meatballs VERY thoroughly in my steamer or by simmering them in broth, do you think I'll survive eating them? :)
