    No, it should be fine if refrigerated properly.

    They certainly won't kill you.
    This advice says no later than a day, but I would think 2 days would probably be okay if they still look and smell normal. Still, I'd eat them sooner if you can just to be safe (but also not waste those yummy meat sticks).

    I tend to ignore the date (it's a guide) and go by things like smell and look.

    Once you’ve cooked them you’ll get another couple of days.
    You have to cook them before the use by date but once cooked they should be fine in the fridge.
