It's good till may, smells like tofu, washed off fine, but came out of the package covered in slime. Edible?
I don't know, I go by the mantra if in doubt, throw it out. Slimy tofu just sounds so unappetizing.
Based on reading that goes back 30+ years, you can cut away the slimy part if there is firm tofu underneath. It happens occasionally, usually because the tofu was not under water and/or the water was not changed. However, if you opened a tub of commercial tofu from a sealed package and found a slimy surface, I would suspect that the seal on the package was bad -- in that case I would be concerned about contamination, and compost it.
Thanks! The texture was weird too so I pitched it. I suspect the package wasn't properly sealed.
A word to the wise: the more the processed (as in tofu), the more the opportunity for bacterial contamination.
slimy means spoiled as far as my experiences go.
