When in doubt, it is best to throw it out! Don’t rely only on the looks and smells. Foods that can make people sick and cause food poisoning often look and smell fine. Never taste food that looks suspicious.
If it is food that you would not feel is safe to eat or serve your family, don’t give it away.
