Does cloudy liquid in ham wrapper indicate spoilage?

Recommended Posts

I tried looking this up online, because I've heard that if the liquid in a hot dog package is cloudy, you shouldn't eat it. But I can't find anything about ham.


This is a pre-sliced small Smithfield ham, expiration date Feb. 16, 2011. I noticed the liquid looked cloudy, but it didn't smell off.


It's been slow cooking in the crock pot all day. I just sampled a slice and it tastes a little tangy. Could the brown sugar I sprinkled on top give it a tangy flavor?


I'm probably just being paranoid (from a nasty case of food poisoning years ago) but would you eat it???
