laundrycrisis Posted July 23, 2012 Share Posted July 23, 2012 I am confused - please help :) Chicken purchased from the grocery store has a use by date that is a week out. But right below that it says to use or freeze within 48 hours of purchase. But the use by date would actually give six days past that. What is up with that ? I don't understand. Anyhow, I'm baking chicken I bought four days ago but has a use by date that is still four more days away. It has been refrigerated and smells fine and we will eat it. I have always gone by four days from the store like my mom did, not 48 hours. Is this living on the edge ? If it was still sitting in the store's case, it would be refrigerated, just like it was at my house. Right ? And they still have four more days to sell it ? :confused: Thanks !
