Is it safe to eat?

I just remembered that I bought a fresh pineapple last Sunday and cut it up on Monday. It's been in the 'fridge since then and looks fine. But I remember reading about it possibly getting toxic when it goes bad. Looking online says something about it lasting 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Well, I just ate a couple of pieces and haven't died...yet. Any personal experiences here or should I just call it a loss and toss it?

Wurm, due to a very low cal and ketogenic dieting regime my cut up fresh pineapple often spends weeks in a closed plastic container in the refrigerator and I have never experiences any problems. I think you are safe.

That's one of the sites I found, PeterB. As it said, How long does cut pineapple last in the fridge? Properly stored, cut pineapple will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator., which is why I asked for personal experiences. 3-4 days seems ridiculously short unless there's some further explanation regarding safety. I can judge taste.

I thought it just fermented and turned into pineapple liquor. Lol
Ours is usually bought already peeled in a plastic container and may stay for a week or so before it is finished. If it smells like alcohol, we usually toss it.

Costco used to (still does?) offer cut pineapple "spears" in plastic containers in their refrigerator section. We would keep/use them for over a week, sometimes longer. Don't know if they added any preservatives or anything...

IMO, food lasts longer if you don't give it an environment to grow into other forms. IOW, just leave it in a plate uncovered or partially covered. That's my experience, but I'm not credentialed :^)

Right, but the reason I gave the specific link is because of their comment: "How to tell if cut pineapple is bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the cut pineapple: discard any pineapple that has an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the cut pineapple."

Fresh pineapple is full of proteases, enzymes that break down proteins -- so I'd guess it might actually last a lot longer than 3-4 days, especially if kept very cold and in a covered container.
