    HI,

    I purchased some scallops on wednesday and unfortunately, I wasn't able to cook them that night as planned. The wife went shopping the next day and as usual, everything she bought just got pushed into the fridge moving my scallops to the back of the shelf. Today, I rediscovered them but I'm afarid to open the container (I have a sensitive nose).

    What should I do, do you think they are still viable or should I just toss them?

    Open and let Ice Cold water run on them . then smell them.

    Chfedb,

    Smelled a little 'off' when I opened the container but after following your advice they had no 'off' smell at all and were fantastic.

    Thanks again.
