How long can my pork chops stay in the fridge I bought them a week ago today. Should I throw them out ?

Pork chops are only good 3-5 days when I’m the refrigerator raw

I agree with Pierino depends who you got them from and how fresh it was when you got it smell it touch it follow your gut you know if it looks or smells good

Agree with most of the comments, did it have a date to use it by? I get antsy after those dates unless my refrig was super cold.

This is a bit tricky to answer. Yes, discoloration is an indicator of spoilage. But did you buy the pork from a butcher or out of one of those foam trays at the supermarket? I tend to distrust the latter for longevity. Especially if it's labeled "previously frozen" or "manager's special".

I like the old sniff and spot test- if they smell or look off they are in the trash. I've kept meat that long and it's been fine, but did have a few lamb chops which developed a slimy green color in 3 days in the fridge which I wasn't comfortable eating.

If they smell okay they should be ok. My fridge stays very cold and I have kept meat that long before without problems
