How long can you keep uncooked sausage in the fridge?
Sausages and Food Safety
|Sausage Storage Chart|
|Type of Sausage||Refrigerator - Unopened||Freezer|
|Fresh Sausage, uncooked||1 to 2 days unopened or opened||1 to 2 months|
|Fresh Sausage, after cooking by consumer||(not applicable)||2 to 3 months|
|Hard/Dry Sausage||Whole, 6 weeks in pantry; indefinitely in refrigerator.||1 to 2 months|
After sausages are purchased, they may be refrigerated for 1 to 2 days - the "sell-by" date on the package may expire during that storage period, but the sausages will remain safe to use after the sell by date if they has been properly stored.
- For sell-by dates that go past at home, you can continue to store the food for a short amount of time depending on what it is. Some common products are: ground meat and poultry (1-2 days past the date), beef (3-5 days past the date), eggs (3-5 weeks past the date).
- Use by. You'll see "use by" dates on food that goes off quickly, such as smoked fish, meat products and ready-prepared salads. Don't use any food or drink after the end of the "use by" date on the label, even if it looks and smells fine. This is because using it after this date could put your health at risk.
- Note : Cooked sausage rolls will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two to three days. Reheat in a 150C preheated oven as required. Rolls can also be frozen for up to one month.

- Other sources say that you can keep the fresh cooked sausage in the refrigerator up to seven days if kept at 40 degrees F (which is the normal setting in both restaurant and home refrigerators). Another says up to five days for cooked Italian sausage, lightly smoked sausage, or breakfast sausage.
- When it comes to a Lunchable, there are no expiration dates.They are too pure. [quote]So I just ate an expired Lunchable[/quote]Enjoy your three months of diarrhea, idiot. Good bye, and thanks for all the fish. Lunchables are awesome.
Properly stored, cooked sausages will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. To further extend the shelf life of cooked sausages, freeze them; freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.

- Yes! It's a commonly held myth that you have to heat precooked sausage before eating it, but it's been fully cooked already, and therefore, is safe to consume right out of the package.
- Once cooked, hard-boiled eggs last about a week refrigerated. Eggs cooked in other ways, such as scrambled, have a shorter shelf life of no more than 4 days. Refrigerating scrambled eggs will affect their texture and palatability, too. Store the scrambled eggs in a refrigerator of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
