Here's the situation: My boss ordered a Crown Pork Roast online. The roast was misdelivered and showed up today no longer frozen. When he called the company they said 1. Do not refreeze it and 2. It cannot sit in the refrigerator for nine days until Christmas.
They are going to ship him a new pork roast and he wants to give me the "old" (already thawed) one. It is in the refrigerator right now and felt cool when it arrived. What I need to know is: Is it safe to cook and eat this thing and if so, how many days do I have before I need to cook it. I really don't want to make anyone sick but it seems a shame to waste it. It was $190 bucks online! Also, the earliset I would be able to cook it is in two days.
