I have noticed that raw cured meat that it exposed to air is gray...but if it isnt exposed to air (such as right against the plastic) is pink
So if everything has been done correctly...meat turned...proper cure ingredients in the proper amounts....it should be ok..But when in doubt...throw it out specially if it smells funky

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things.... The good things don't always soften the bad things, and vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
