How long can you store meat in a refrigerator?

I don't know whether I can eat this chicken.

Chicken will spoil in one or two days time even when refrigerted below 40 degrees Faherenheit. The same goes for stuffed cuts like chops or chicken breasts and ground meats of any kind. Smoked meats may last up to a week, while steaks and roasts will keep only three to five days at this temperature.

For lunch meat it is seven days, but for something like chicken, after two or three days, you need to dispose of it.

If I plan on using the meat within 24 hours of purchase, I leave it in the refrigerator. Otherwise, I wrap it for freezing when I arrive home from the store. Double wrap and label it. Don't take any chances.
