Turkey broth safety question

We had our dinner Wednesday, and Wednesday night I made broth from the carcass. I had some things come up and didn't use it. It's been strained and refrigerated....this is the 5th day. Everything I read online says broths are only good 2 days. Do you all follow that advice? I usually am cautious, so I'll probably throw it out. I was just curious.

I know boxed broth can be kept for a couple of weeks. I did my soup Friday and I certainly won't hesitate to continue to eat it for at least a week. Never heard only two days for stock.

Does it look okay? Smell okay? Taste it. If still okay, keep it. If not to any of the three, chuck it out. If you are worried about keeping it any longer, freezer it now (assuming okay still).

If it smells OK (it still should), bring it to a boil for 5 minutes then you can use it or freeze it.
