I like Barbara's idea.

Anything ground up should be eaten or frozen w/in a day or two, imo. If you do decide to eat it, go to the store first and stock up on TP, and maybe reserve a room at the hospital.

Use it for catfish bait, they'll eat anything! If the water isn't full of pollutents, you have now taken something that can't be eaten and turned it into something that can. BTW, skinning cats is easy, all you need is a board, a nail, a pair of pliers and a fillet knife.

It's gone up in price like crazy here. Like .50 a pound at least so I wouldn't say it's very inexpensive.

That said, without question throw it out. And I wouldn't give it to the dig either. I do that once and it was a disaster.

Ground beef is pretty expensive here, too. It seems all beef has gone up.

If you've ever had to clean up after and get vet treatment for a dog who ate bad hamburger, then you'd think twice ... it was NOT a pretty sight ...

Not to mention the guilt you feel for putting the little guy through it.

I wouldn't feed my animals food that I wouldn't eat from a safety point of view.

I have used ground beef that had a "weird smell" and it tends to have a "weird" taste as well. When it hits the hot pan there is a distinct smells if it is bad, and it is not pleasant. Sometimes it can smell a tad off, and you hesitant but it is ok. When it is really bad the smell is horrible when it heats.

Absolutley. I thught it was a treat, and God knows, dogs eat some bad stuff when out on walks.

It was a big gal, my greyhound Opal. She became so dehydrated that they had to inject her with saline and she had this huge bubble on her back -- she looked like a camel!

Sadly, you can't be sure something that tastes really good isn't going to come back and bite you later.

Returning from vacation last month we had a stopover in Miami and had dinner at a Cuban cafeteria-style restaurant. I was excited and loaded up my tray with lechon asada, black beans, rice and plantains. SO had a Cuban sandwich. All through the meal, I was raving about how delicious everything was. The other shoe dropped a day after we got home. I was "not normal" for a week. SO was fine.

What's really scary is that I saw a lot of flight crews eating there.
