Why Did My Meat Lose its Color (and did it go bad?)

Oliverstreet | Feb 7, 200803:45 PM

I bought some lovely-looking flank steak from Whole Foods this Tuesday and threw it in the fridge. Tonight (Thursday). I took it out to use it, and it was no longer a vibrant red, but instead a rather sickly gray color. There's a little odor, but I don't know if it's "meat" smell or if it means it went rotten. But my steak couldn't have gone bad in two days, could it?

Anyone know what gives?
