    Like a big log of Jimmy Dean sausage that has been opened? I've had it in there for almost a month I think.

    Thanks!

    It should have a use by date. I believe a month is too long for sausage unless it's smoked.

    If it's just been refrigerated and not frozen, I'd pitch it. A month is a long time for thawed meat to keep.

    Does it smell off? And a big question is if you touched it with bare hands. If you just cut off a hunk with a clean knife and then wrapped it and put it away, it might be okay.

    You might need to cook it and see how it is.
