should fresh sausages have a use by date 13 days after you have bought them. I suspiciously inspected some sausages that I had bought 11 days previously but thought it was my normal paranoia setting in. I cooked them and ate them and had a terrible night last night, I actually vomited which is a rare occurrence. Tummy is settling down now, neither of my children are ill and they didn't eat them.

They were within the manufacturers use by date but i bought them on the 10th and were supposedly ok until the 23rd. Its just on thinking about it it seems like an awfully long time.

So I have either had a bug, or it was the sausages, as I only ate spuds and veg with it, and in the day ate salad pittas and fruit.

Well if it has a use by date they should be ok til then but I'd have probably frozen them until I was sure I'd eat them anyway as I have a really weak tummy sometimes.

It doesn't look good for them. I brought a block of cheese last week which was perfectly in date and when I opened it that evening it was completely mouldy. If there's any left you can send 'em back tothe company and make a complaint.
You should complain Goodsoulette !

PS China - fortunately *mouldy* cheese is not harmful and is most unlikely to give you a bad tum, it just looks awful (think of all those *blue cheeses* lol)

Im not much of a complainer really and chances are I probably have managed to get a bug somehow but not from the kids. Overthinking things, probably, its just seems that two weeks for sausages is a long use by date and thought it might be a printing error.
Well if in doubt freeze until the day of use.

Jugs - Unless it's that posh mould on the cheeses on the deli counter, I ain't touching it!
China. You are wise, the mold in cheeses that are 'blue veined' is used in the processing and is a completely different sort of mold than that which appears on cheddar, etc. th/Nutritionist+Looks+At+Good+And+Bad+Mold+On+ Food.htm.

Apparently, according to the article, you should cut the mold off with at least an inch of cheese and then it's OK to use!!
