Is it safe to eat these oysters?

Brillig | Nov 22, 201708:53 AM     10

Two weeks ago, my mother bought two pints of oysters at Costco. They look just like this:

The "Sell By" date is today, and we're planning to cook them in a casserole for Thanksgiving dinner (tomorrow). I'm not worried about being one day past the "Sell" date, but I AM worried that she bought them two weeks ago! They've been refrigerated the whole time, and the containers are sealed. The plastic lids are very slightly convex, though. Should I toss them out, or are they safe to cook and eat?

Thanks for informed advice!
