There has been some controversity in the news overthe amount of food waste recently. All about sell by dates and so on. Like many posters have previously expressed, my view has been that if it smells ok.you're in with a chance, and the fact I'm still posting ought to be a testimony to this. However, I'm not an expert. Some years ago I recall lapin posted something about the dangers of keeping cooked rice, which many of us would otherwise view as relatively harmless. Since then, I've been cautious, letting the dog enjoy what's left. I'd love her to repea her knowledge. I watched The last episode of Filthy Cities today describing how how New Yorkers were subjected a century ago and later to toxic additives in their sausages to make rotting meat acceptable in their hot dogs. Are we too fussy these days? Should we be more fussy?
