packet bacon or ham? once opened, would you use them a week later? what about meat which is defrosted (steak, chops, chicken) and then left in fridge... how long til should not use it? thanks!

I personally will leave an opened packet of bacon in the fridge for up to two weeks (and no one's ever got poisoned ~ yet! )But as for chicken I'd be very cautious and I believe steak can be left for a few days and it "ages"

Im similar to darlingmole, except I have a few fantastic tupperware containers for bacon. You can kinda smell when they are getting a bit off.

Red meat gets better in the fridge for 2 weeks as long as its not in plastic. Chicken is good for 5 days though I try and avoid that. Cured meats like good bacon lasts ages cheap bacon lasts for a week or two. Venison I keep in as big a pieces as I can and don't touch it until its been in the fridge for a week at least preferably 2
