Is my goose meat bad?

Postby matt87 » Sun May 11, 2008 6:33 pm

Hey guys I recently took a few snow goose breasts out of the freezer and put them in ziploc bags in the freezer to thaw out. I was going to make them into jerky but didn't get around to it until several days later. I put the meat in the fridge on Tuesday and I just chopped it up and put it in marinade to soak overnight just now, Sunday. I don't know much about meat or anything, and I couldn't tell if it was bad or not especially since I'm not used to what snow goose breasts look like. Do you think the meat's bad? thanks

snow goose meat is going to be very dark red/maroon colored after you slice it open. not so different from other migratory waterfowl... i would cook & eat thawed meat within a week, but i dont know the "limit" on how long birds will keep in the fridge.

so if you eat that goose meat and end up sick, puking, and spending a few hours in the "library" be sure to let the rest of us know.

well I am certen you have eaten it by now. Usualy bad duck or goose will have turned a tan color and give off a bad smell--- you can just cut this part off(its usualy just the edges of a breast, or the outside of the breast) cut untill you reach the nice dark red color of good meat if this happens.

If it smells like something other than goose meat, dont eat it. If it smells like anything like goose meat, dont eat it.
