Turkey sandwich in the fridge for a week...still safe to eat?

Asked by Sandwichdude (37 points ) November 29th, 2010

Left half a turkey sub (lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo) in the fridge since last tuesday. I imagine the sandwich might be sort of soggy and gross, but is it still safe to eat?

Not on your life. my wife says to chuck anything over two days old, especially if it smells fowl, uh foul.

No. Eat at your own risk.

Take a bite and let us know. If you don’t answer back by tomorrow, we’ll fear for the worst.

No, pitch it. Open a can of soup for lunch.

Are you Homer Simpson? If not, I’d say don’t eat it.

The guidelines for leftover thanksgiving turkey is to freeze it right away or use it by Saturday at the latest.

If you can’t afford a new sandwich, you won’t be able to afford the hospital stay after you eat it.

Especially do not eat it if it was out of the refrigerator and then re-refrigerated. The consequences of eating this are awful, and throwing out half an old sandwich is of no consequence. Toss it now (so no one else eats it by mistake).

When in doubt, throw it out.

When in favor, just give it some flavor.

Mmmmm that sounds absolutely delicious, not! I wouldn’t eat it and this is coming from a person who drank hot sauce and eats food that has been sitting out for days.

When in doubt, throw it out! ;-) But yeah, a week is too long.

I would go by stinkiness or 7 days, which ever comes first.

Anyone ever see the Simpsons episode where he had to finish the hoagie from the company picnic. Best episode ever!

Um, no. Try not to eat anything over like 3 days old. Especially if it smells funky!

nebule's avatar

I can’t wait for a Turkey sandwich…sorry just saying :/....not long to go now though!
