Buying meat that has gone off is not only dangerous to your health, but also quite unpleasant from a financial point of view. Unfortunately, this can happen to even the most careful ones of us, who most certainly check the expiration date indicated on the products.
When chicken meat is not stored properly or has been contaminated during processing and packaging, it is possible for it to have gone off, even if it is in date.
Gone off chicken is most easily recognized by the specific smell of rotten, as well as by the change in its color. Instead of the typical white to yellow, it has a grayish or reddish tinge.
Last but not least, you should check for the presence of mucus on the meat, which is a sure sign of the presence of pathogenic bacteria. We recommend that you do not eat meat that doesn't look right to you.
