    Default Veggie sausage gone bad?

    I bought Gimme Lean! Sausage style stuff today and didn't realize that it said "sell by Oct202006"

    Can vegan sausage go bad and make you sick if you eat it? I was planning on cooking it tomorrow but now I'm worried...should I throw it away ?

    I wouldn't eat it.

    Vegan food can go bad.
    Peace, love, and happiness.

    Generally I'd eat it, if it's well cooked then it will kill any germs.

    If you bought it today though I'd take it back.

    I'd say it is okay to eat - it says SELL by that date; the seller wouldn't know when the consumer is going to eat it... also companies always give themselves a buffer zone so as not to be sued... I'd eat it

    I'd also eat it (if it looked and smelled the same as normal) - 6 days past a sell by date for something which has a shelf life of at least a couple of months, which I assume these do, isn't very long.

    Though, if the shop you got it from is near and you still have the receipt, you could take it back as they shouldn't have sold it.

    UPDATE: I ate it today and it was fine (really good actually). I'm thinking of having it again tomorrow or the day after tomorrow...hopefully it'll stay good till then as well *crosses fingers*

    The most harmful food borne pathogens that cause food poisoning are more resilient than the foodstuff, and therefore can't be destroyed by cooking. The food would need to be incinerated which wouldn't do much for the taste

    However what chance is there that these sausages have become tainted with e.coli or similar? Not much I'd bet.
