I do have limits. I wouldn't eat a bloated smelly sealed package. As long as the taste is not funny, I am proceeding.Wth was thawing ground beef doing on top of your freezer?
Note that ground meat is far more of a contamination-concern then an intact cut and thus is more likely to go bad quickly/make you sick.
I've also let uncured bacon get warm for a bit too long(approx 17 hours). Ate three strips this morning. If I land in the hospital, I'll say my mea culpa. I doubt it though.
At least meat makes gives easy tangible feedback it's not fit. Mycotoxins in peanuts are not noticeable nor is vegetable oil that has sat for too long.
