How long can you keep raw pork, in a barbecue marinade, in the refrigerator before you must throw it away?
Thank you, Karen

Raw meat of any kind should not be kept more than 3-5 days from the date of purchase, and that's assuming you bought it before the sell-by date. The fact that the pork is in the marinade does not in any way extend its shelf life.
