What they said. Open it up and check it out.

So long as it has been handled properly (safe temps, etc.) you should be good to go.

Blizzard Prep. In Dentist chair for bridge prep at 0810. Departed with two temp crowns and bridge ordered 0945. Got home with only half my mouth functioning. Had a six pound bone in ham. It is smoking away on the Mini WSM with a mix of Royal Oak and Ozark Oak with a few small lumps of pecan. Looking forward to smoked ham salad. Let it snow.

I cook stuff all the time past its sell by date. But I don't keep leftovers and usually flame it a little past what I normally cook. Just one of my quirks. Amongst many.

Keep that hunk of meat! Cryovac'ed stuff keeps an EXTREMELY LONG TIME!!! From everything I've read and cooked so far, I've learned that a solid piece of meat is good to go for a long time past the date usually, and ground meat is almost as long too as long as it kept real cold. I haven't been smoking too long, but I've been cooking meat for the past 7 years about 4 times a week.

The date's on there to make sure that the store doesn't get in any trouble for safety issues and they always stick to the extreme side of safe. Even if it did look like something might be up, if it didn't have an off smell I'd trim it to see if it's just the very outside. Then again I am beyond cheap and just can't stand to see a hunk of meat go to waste. Good luck on the cook!

This is true. Co-Packers that do canned items are prohibited by law of putting an expiration of longer than a year on anything. Though the contents might be good for two.

On the other hand, the fresher the better for pork. It is probably safe but degraded in quality.

Retailers take into account home storage for a few days after purchase. That time you add to the pull date.

It is my experience that pork from a cryovac always smells a little funky.

That said, I'm sure your pork loin is okay three days after the sell-by date, as long as it was properly refrigerated.

Default Sell by date...

All above is great advise. Though it ma be too late, I would not have put a loin in the crock pot. Cooking it all day will not make it better. If you wanted to be lazy, put it on the oven until it reaches 140. At this point you can eat it or freeze it.
