Depending on where you buy your food,quality is key.It's pretty obvious that meat has gone bad when it's not pink anymore right?I always check the expiration date along with that but some places continue to sell expired meat and to my surprise,people buy them because it's cheaper.Aren't there safety regulations that these grocery stores have to follow? What are your thoughts?

I would make do with eggs and
