Time-limit on Slaughtered Meat



The Torah does not put any restrictions on the time that meat may be consumed after it has been slaughtered, with the exception of a votive or free will offering (a specific sacrifice of well-being). When the sacrifice is performed, the meat may be eaten on that day, and on the next. However, if there is any meat that has been left over from the previous two days, it must be burned up completely (consumed) in fire on the third day. If any of the meat of the votive/free-will sacrifice is eaten on the third day, the sacrifice will be rejected by YHWH. In fact, the person who eats this meat is liable for guilt before YHWH (Wayyiqra' 7.17-18).
