I ate it. It passed the sniff test and the visual test. Taste wise, it tastes fine! I was so hungry I had to eat it...the alternative was not pretty! I have 6 hours left at work today, so I'll let you know if there are any side effects

If it's been refrigerated continuously, smells and looks okay, I'd go for it. How long it would last would be affected by the temperature of the refrigerator (which would be affected by how often it is opened). Our fridge at work is set very low (just above freezing), and stuff lasts quite a while in it. Part of my lunch today was left overs from a picnic I had at my house last Saturday.

As long as it had been refrigerated and you have a good fridge it could stay at least 6 days without a problem. I made mac. and potato salad on Monday and it is just fine today, dh will finish it tonight with chicken for dinner, if there is any leftover then the garbage disposal will eat it.
