Thawed tuna- safe for how long?

Thawed tuna- safe for how long?

CarmenR | Dec 1, 2010 09:33 PM

I have some trader joes blister-packed tuna that I bought frozen and threw in the fridge to defrost a few days ago...whoops, forgot about it and now its been 4 days. Aside from maybe some consistency issues, I think it's safe to eat...right? Its not been at room temp at all- straight from freezer to fridge...

I'm only concerned because it *does* say that it should be cooked immediately after thawing (and that it should be thawed outside of the package, but thats beside the point...)
If its ok, how long can it live in the fridge? I acquired some leftovers which are taking time to eat, thus pushing back my dinner schedule...
