If they were frozen I don't see any problem.

I wouldn't risk it. If it were a dry grocery then maybe but not something refrigerated. JMO.

Frozen, go ahead and use them. Refrigerated I'd probably give 'em the toss.

*shifty eyes* To be honest, I'd probably eat 'em too. But I didn't want to tell someone else to do it

I agree here. Also depends though if they contain dairy products or eggs. If so toss them. When it doubt, throw it out. Those things are cheap anyway.

The worst thing that might happen is the yeast is inactive and the crust won't rise. There are so many preservatives and chems in those refrigerated doughs that I doubt any germs could do any serious damage. I agree with the previous poster - if it passes the sniff test go for it. Those tubes are hermetically sealed anyways, so bacteria can't begin to blossom until the seam has been breached.

I agree w/the last post - so many chemicals/preservatives are in things - if it doesn't smell bad - use it.
