roll of jimmy dean maple sausage, expires feb 6th 2011, it feels like it has expanded in size by 20-25%

is that normal and is it still safe to eat ? i have a concern that it may bust the seams of the plastic wrapper.

and its been sitting in the lower half of my refrigerator.

It's bad had the same thing happen to me this past summer.......the date is a use by/ or freeze by date. Now I always freeze it and defrost it before eating.

swelling equals gas, gas equals rot rot equals ass fallng out. Not worth 2 bucks, toss it.

Yep.

There's nothing in sausage that would make it "swell" except badness.

I didn't realize you bumped this and was wondering why in the hell the OP would want to eat sausage that expired 4 months ago

Yeah, if you've exceeded the expiry date on meat by three months... throwing it away is a pretty good idea.

I can't believe those who posted for you to return expired meat to the store.

What do you do with milk or eggs past the sell by date?

I worked at a grocery store as an undergrad. We would accept returns of expired food if the customer alleged that it was expired when we sold it to them - no receipt required. It was basically a good will thing and I'm sure it was taken advantage of by many.
