I have had some raw mince meat in my fridge, is it ok to freeze it now?

I have had some raw mince meat(mince beef) in my fridge for like 2 days now. Is it ok for me to now put it in the freezer because I don't want to eat it until next week(7 or 8 days time) at the earliest. 


The expiry date on the packet of the mince meat says the 12th of July.

    If it was fresh when you put it in the fridge, its ok to pop the pack in the freezer.

    The expiry date has little to do with what you have now. How was it packaged? Is it air tight? Has it started to brown (oxsidize) at all? If it has don't freeze. Eat now of toss it out.

    Well, that's the idea of a freezer!

    Yes, it's fine.  It'll last for months once frozen.

    It is not the "expiry" date -- it is the last day they can sell it.

    The Government says it is good for another four days in the 'fridge.
