Meat smells a little "off" is it ok to eat if I fry it?

The only meat I have left in the fridge smells a little "off." I bought it about a week ago from whole foods (it's good quality level 4 beef if that counts). I'm slow cooking it now to soften the marrow and then I plan on frying it... Should I just chuck it?

bacteria poop is not something you want to consume.

It might be okay to eat sometimes but you could get really sick. Even though you spent a lot of money on it I wouldn't risk it. Try freezing your meat when you buy it, this is what I do to keep quality meat from going bad on me.

I agree with @Stephen 4. I know meat at WF is expensive, but it's just not worth it to take the risk. I cooked some questionable chicken from there a couple months ago and my bf got VERY sick for about 3 days. He and I both ate it, but he's a big eater and ate a lot more than I did so he felt the wrath of sickness the next evening. The next time that happened (so frustrating), we tossed the meat and got some Thai food.

The bacteria that grow on meat when it goes bad aren't the problem. Most of them will die when you cook it thoroughly. But those bacteria have produced byproducts that are heat stable and toxic in some cases. This is why it can be bad to eat rotten cooked meat. Listen to your senses, if it's bad throw it out!
