Is there a guideline on removing the unnecessary amounts of sodium nitrate on commercially packaged sliced deli meat?

Got some sliced turkey in my refrigerator that I got from Kroger’s back in July and the sodium nitrate brine seems to have become very sour and saltier tasting while the texture of the turkey still seems pretty fresh

    yeah well when the "juices" from packaged meats taste bad, smell bad guess what...the meat is bad.

    If you decide to eat this..and you really shouldn't

    Your body will ..eliminate the bad stuff automatically...

    Prior to eating may I suggest that you do the following.

    Go to the store and buy

    1) extra toilet paper

    2) That pink liquid that is supposed to help with "upset stomach, diarrhea, bloating.

    3) Three of four magazines of your choice.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    sodium nitrate is a preservative. If the preservative has gone bad, what do you think happens with the turkey?

    Whoa, that deli meat is so far past the expiration date it might literally be unsafe to eat it. Please throw it away.
