How long is a packaged roast good in a refridgerator? I bought one on Tuesday and haven't had a chance to use it. Can I cook it today or should I throw it out?

|Use or freeze products with a "Sell-By" date within 3 to 5 days of purchase
If the manufacturer has determined a "Use-By" date, observe it. This is a quality assurance date after which peak quality begins to lessen but the product may still be used. It's always best to buy a product before its date expires. It's not important if a date expires after freezing beef because all foods stay safe while properly frozen.
