Every year I think about getting a free range turkey, but $50-$75 vs. under $10--not much contest, unfortunately. You get what you pay for, though. The extra $$ (if you can afford it) if worth it. Where I live I can get free range for as little as $1.59 per pound, if it were over $3...

I don't eat meat, and never have, but putting myself in your shoes, I'd most likely throw it out (even though it would be painful to do so). This is an interesting idea. Also, I know this sounds terrible, but our local food banks have actually been ASKING for...
The meat is neatly (double) wrapped in white butcher's paper. It is labeled with the date, source and type of meat. I looked again today and I actually think it is closer to 50 pounds, possibly more! The meat seriously looks perfect (at least the package I unwrapped did) and I would never guess that it is 5 years old. It looks like it could be a month old. I am leaning toward feeding it to the dog...but I don't want to waste it if it *is* edible. But I don't think I am...
thanks for posting this. I have been looking for a way to heat my garage this winter.

I tend to err on the side of caution when it comes to meat, though, so maybe I am just too paranoid. I am worried about this as well, but it looks and smells fine.

But I am a *little* nervous...
I just moved into a rental that has about 20 pounds of local frozen ground beef in the freezer. It is nearly 5 years old. It is well wrapped, and does not smell or look bad. It still has a nice red color, and appears to have been frozen solid the entire 5 years. I am renting the house from the people who bought the beef originally, and they said it was frozen the entire time. Is it safe to eat? I was thinking of using it in chili and marinara sauce. I figure it will not...
Wow. I don't think that the doctors are doing all that stuff for no reason. This thread is going too far...comparing it to child abuse and implying that the doctors are trying to hurt babies. That is pretty extreme.
