✱ 11 – Deli Meats
You may think that deli meats would stay good for a while since they have preservatives. However, most of the time unless they are in airtight packages they will not last for more than 5 days. And they can easily attract listeria just as soft cheeses do. Deli meat that has been opened up and is sitting in the fridge for more than 5 days needs to be tossed away.
