I bought chicken breasts (boneless skinless) thursday. the package says "sell by 6/5/05"... you think they would still be fine to use today?

3 days in the refrigerator was our guidelines when I worked at the nursing home. Breasts seem to "last" longer than dark meat. As a last resort, open it and smell. The nose knows.

I would toss them out. Two days in the fridge is as long as it should last (accourding to the butcher at Whole Foods). I would not risk food poisoning!
