Give them the old sniffer test - if they smell bad - pitch em - if not go for it. When in doubt, throw it out -

or you coud always use my tried and true method... Hey Big Al - do these ribs taste OK???...

If your 'fridge is at normal operating temps, then you're good to go.
Cracks me up when I see people turn their noses up at the reduced meat case in our local grocery store. I routinely pick up steak and what-not for less than half price because people won't buy the meat when it gets that brown color from oxidation.
It's all about common sense and logic, like driving a car is.
I wouldn't hesitate to use it if the 'fridge temp has been in the safe range.
Even more so if the BB's are cryoed.
Make sure you post some pron for your bros!
