I bought them on Monday and thought I'd eat them that night, but fell asleep early. Tuesday I wasn't home. Now it's Wednesday and they still look pretty good. Is it safe to eat them? (total time since leaving the display case: 51 hours)
My refrigerator is on the cold side but I don't know exact temperature. Milk usually lasts a little beyond the expiration date. The shrimp were not unrefrigerated for more than half an hour (straight from the store to the refrigerator). If they smelled bad I wouldn't eat them even if I had bought them moments before.
