Last Friday I got 4 whole pork loins from Sam's. I just wanted 'em. LOL Two are already in the tub curing.......
My question, on the tag (price, expiration, poundage, etc) it says expiration is Sept. 26. It was bought on the 6th, does anyone else think that's sort of a long time? Yes its cryo packed, its IT in my fridge is 37 degrees (experience), but.....That's over two weeks, is it just me not noticing it before or is two weeks not normal? I will usually give my meats up to 7 days is cryo sealed and I know no temp spikes.
Anyway two weeks just seems abnormally long? Can I keep my meats longer? Sure would be nice, I don't re-freeze most meats, unless after cooking.
EDITT::: correcting the purchase date to reflect Friday's date of 9/6 instead of 9/9 like I thought. Which makes it even worse!
