So I'm lazy as hell tonight and don't feel like cooking or ordering out. There's some sliced turkey in the fridge that I bought 10 days ago. It's high quality stuff, I believe Boar's Head brand.
I'm interested to know... What's the longest people here will let deli meat sit in the fridge before pitching it? My turkey doesn't smell or anything, but I'm thinking it has to be on the border.
On the 7th day, it gets tossed.

If it's turkey and it smells fine, I'd eat it. Turkey is generally pretty obvious about when it has gone south. Although if it's old don't be surprised if you have a weird bowel movement later.
if it feels slimy don't eat it.
Sliced deli meat (not packaged) is max 6 days.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..

Don't worry about how many days.
Smelly = no eat.
Slimy = no eat.

Yes, my wife likes hers tossed once a week as well.
Yep, go by smell and feel. It can also depend a lot upon the refrigerator. When I was renting, my apartment's refrigerator was awful and things went bad really quickly (milk, meat, lettuce and other veggies, etc). I bought a house and had to buy a new refrigerator. I'm shocked how long fruits and vegetables last in the new fridge.

I have been told this by many, including at the deli counter.
and your refrigerator should be in the mid to upper 30s in my opinion and the freezer below 0 F. Just because something is frozen isn't good enough.

As others have said, go by smell and feel. However, even if it's safe to eat it's still going to taste lousy after 10 days in the fridge. I toss my Boarshead Ovengold after 4-5 days because it loses a lot of its flavor by then.

7 days. After that it smells weird and I would never trust it. If its prepackaged, it lasts much longer.

Let me just help you out right now:
Thanks a lot union wood shop!
I started puking and pooping my guts out violently every 10 mins at 10. Now itm laying on the co
Give a piece to the dog.. Wait one hour...if ok, make a sanwhich
This...just like any other leftover food.
Guy at work decided to clean out the little fridge we have in our area of the office today. He found some pickled-creamed herring I left in there, dated 1/24/12. Opened it up and it smelled fine, so I ate it...tasted fine. He thought I was crazy. Explained to him that the pickling preserved it. He was still freaked out and predicted I'd be projectile vomiting in a few hours...didn't happen.
Turkey is always slimy to some degree.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Isn't pickeled herring like $4 for a tin? Man that's quite a bit of risk for a few bucks....if it's even borderline I toss it out - not worth it for me.
It wasn't canned...got it fresh from a local fish counter in a plastic container. It wasn't about what it cost...it was a great snack this afternoon when the only other option was the vending machine.
Depends on the kind of meat. Salami, pastrami and other high fat meats last longer. Boars head is good stuff, put it's the fancy crap with less preservatives. I would pitch it in five days. It's really up to you tho
A friend of mine almost died eating old hot dogs. His roommate had bought the hotdogs a month earlier, but forgot them in the trunk of his car. The Roommate found them, they looked okay and put them in the fridge. My friend was hungry cooked a couple of them up. Anyway he wound up in the emergency room full of bacteria. They had to pump him up with hardcore antibiotics. The Doctor asked him if he was a junky because he only sees heroin addicts in his condition.
ur gonna be poopin.
Michigan food code requires discarding it at the end of the 4th day.
I refuse to buy boar's head because of that creepy old ass dude who does their commercials. With his loose skin and old man lisp....gross
That is a restaurant I assume? Is that after slicing, or in any unwrapped form?
Boar's Head turkey pastrami is the bomb. I don't care if the old guy is creepy.
7 days? No f-ing way. I don't touch that stuff beyond 4-5 days tops.
I don't trust the ex con working at the deli to keep track of how long that half-sliced turkey has been sitting in the cooler.
I always toss it on the 7th day. Truth is I rarely eat it after the 5th day though. It just sits there in the fridge reminding me how wasteful I am.
