12 Less-Known Signs Your Food Has Gone BAD
#5. Your meat has a weird color
I don’t care if you just got your meat from the grocery store, if you had it in your freezer for a while or if it’s from a friend: if it has a weird color, don’t eat it.
However, I know it’s easier said than done since meat can come in such a wide range of colors. The US Department of Agriculture says that meat should be red, but many types of meat steak can be brownish and still great.
If you notice brownish meat wrapped in plastic, it might just be due to its lack of oxygen. However, any meat that looks strangely dark or has a greenish hue should be tossed immediately.
Eating old or rotten meat is one of the most dangerous things you could do since it can develop bacteria that causes severe food poisoning or extreme allergic reactions.
