Unopened, there should be a date on the package somewhere.

Opened, it depends. Cured products like salami should be good for a few weeks. Otherwise I believe they fall into the same category as leftovers, 4 days per the USDA.

Either way you should be able to freeze them.

You shouldn't feel guilty about eating whatever makes you happy as long as it's in moderation and part of a balanced diet. Stress -- that'll kill you.

ono knows. Also,I have seen a huge lengthening of shelf life by storing meats in the coldest part of the frig- the lower left rear corner- shelf and drawer.
