Question: I purchased a container of crabmeat last week and only used half. Do you think it is still ok to use for New Years Eve. It has been refrigerated all week. Thoughts??

It could be if you have a good fridge. The crab meat is already cooked so it will last quite a bit longer.

Very easy to tell. Just smell it.

You must have got ultra pasteurized. Anyway, in general, no. There are a few days until New Year's Eve.

I wouldn't eat it. You're looking at, what, 10 day old crab when you get to it on NYE?

How did crab meat manage to sit around that long? It's so good, and can be used for so many things. What a waste, lol.

Never over seven days. Seafood for me on ice in the cooler three to four days max.
