Same with deli meats, they come in prewraped in whole form then sliced at the deli. Still include nitrates and high sodium. Same as sliced over the counter. Use within 3-4 days after purchase. A whole deli item may take 2 or 3 days to sell the entire amount, so it may Not be fresh at the deli section! Never risk eating any deli or prepackaged meat if the texture appears to be somewhat slimey.

Pre-packaged meats are not the best thing to eat. They are loaded with salt and other nasty additives. I admit that I love pre-packaged bologna but I don't eat it everyday. Heck, I can't remember the last time I bought some. OK, now I have a taste for a cheese and bologna sandwich.

Most sliced sandwich meat is cured with nitrates, which are not good for you. There is also a lot of sodium in most. Uncured meats should be consumed within one week of purchase/opening regardless of their warnings or lack thereof. Hope that helps.
why does it say on some packaged sliced sandwich meat "eat within 10 days of opening" and on others there's just a "regular" expiry date? Are any additives added to make the meat stay fresh longer? Thanks.
