Will I regret having eaten expired canadian bacon? What's the worst thing that could happen? I think I'm experiencing phantom food poisoning symptoms, help!

Made breakfast sandwiches for self and partner this morning but noticed the "sell by" date on the unopened package of Canadian bacon was May 11, 2011. I called "Land O Lakes" and asked if it was okay but was told they only guarantee their products one week past their sell by date. Since the woman could not see or smell the product, she could not advise on whether it was safe to eat.
It wasn't milky or slimy and smelled fine so I made it and ate it. Now I'm scared! If the past Friday was the last day they would guarantee the product, do you think it's okay to eat it 4 days past that point? I'm mostly worried that I might have poisoned my partner..
