    As long as it's not bulging and leaking, it probably won't kill you. :D But it certainly won't taste as good as when it was packed -- maybe a couple of years ago?? I wouldn't plan an important, fancy meal around it, if I were you. ;)

    sousweets....im bigger,badder and have sharper knives than peta, my gals folks have a large turkey farm in the north of england which was once attacked by animal rights people.what they failed to understand about turkeys is that even with 10000 square feet heated sheds that they all huddle together in one corner leaving enough empty space to play a game of football. we greeted them(the activists not the critters) with baseball bats and made the national press. lol.

    kuan....gonna eat it tonight. fingers crossed,i should be ok,my stomach has held up to some pretty fierce drinking games before.
    thanks for your concern.

    soussweets.you back from nyc then......well.....
