Heya gang -

If you smell your meat and it smells bad - RETURN IT AND GET FRESH SMELLING MEAT.
If you believe someone just because he posts all the time and says it's good without backing up his claims, you are asking for a trip to the emergency room, OR WORSE...
Google if you have questions and want a second opinion.
This forum is in no way going to reimburse you or your family for food poisoning or worse. Don't take chances. With yourself or others.
Thousands upon thousands of years of natural selection have developed a human nose that can detect a few parts per million of rotten food for a reason - regardless of flashy packaging or smooth pseudo-intellectual rationalizations.

Google and read up on it.
Eating bad food for years and talking about it on the Internet is NOT justification for you taking the same risks.
