I saved myself from a horrible fate but Paul F will likely be disapproving

So, I was all alone for dinner tonight and remembered that I had some yummy british bangers in the fridge.The package was first opened last week so there were only two out of four left and the expiration date is not for another week. So, I heated up a skillet and poured some beer in (bangers in beer, yummy!!!) After the beer got bubbling I removed the bangers from the package and noticed a slippery sliminess to them. By this time I was hungry and was all psyched up for beer bangers, but as I tried to wipe the slimy stuff off a slight uneasiness came over me. Nevertheless I soldiered onwards and threw the bangers into the beer. The aroma was delicious. However, second thoughts started to permeate my brain so I googled "slimy sausages". NOT A GOOD IDEA! The returned descriptions of nasty microbes and unfortunate intestinal disasters turned me off so much that I threw the bangers into the compost bin. I'm now having a breakfast of eggs and avocado on toast (about the only other food left in the fridge). I know that Paul would not have backed down so quickly and I am ashamed.

No shame in living to bang(er) another day. Better to be safe than sorry.

I'm guessing it was the sausage skins breaking down from the beer...

But, in a surprise plot twist, "go with your gut" is not a bad way to decide edibleness.

Kinda like I learned regarding shop safety.. If, after taking all the routine precautionss, something you're about to do with hand or power tools makes you pause and gives you a bad feeling - stop and figure out why, or JUST DON'T DO IT.

Actually, the sausages hadn't yet touched the beer when the sliminess became evident.

funny, I just fed the family some "slightly" slimy hot dogs. but, they, too, were not due for another 10 days. they were also from an open package. I think it has more to do with the exposure to air than to some inherent bad meat.

I think there are enough chemicals throughout the hot dogs that they would be safe to eat after cooking. Sausages are a different story - I would not eat them.

It happens regularly with hot dogs and sausages after only a few days after the package is opened.

I like Miller's Beef Hot Dogs and Polish Sausahge available from my local Safeway. The packages last just under two weeks. After a few days, they're slightly slimy, even though I put tim in a ZipLoc bag after opening.

Not a problem. They are tasty.

one occasion the last two sausages did go about three weeks, and didn't smell very good. So they were tossed out.

these were the "natural" no nitrates/nitrites variety, so maybe I should have went with the preservative variety!

Life is too short - I'd have gone the breakfast route myself.

But I've had severe food poisoning - twice.

I took one for the team yesterday. I ate a bowl of week old potato leek soup. A small bowl. I lived.

A quick rinse under the kitchen faucet and all would have been well. Just get them hot enough when you cook them.

You are not supposed to put meat in a compost bin.

Not home compost, but it's perfectly OK for the municipal compost. In fact it says so right on the bin.

Freezing them works for me. Open the packs on the long side and you can usually break off what you need. Thaw in mic for 20 or 30 seconds and into the pan.

If I were you, I would have washed the sausages in tap water to remove the slime then I'd give it a very serious nose-check. If it smelled ok, proceed. But I too believe in following your gut - if you don't think it's good, it won't taste good.

That would have been my solution.
