Is a 2 day old tuna sandwich safe to eat?

I left it in the office fridge Friday, ate out. Today however I have no lunch, and kinda fancy a tuna sandwich.
Does two day old tuna make you sick? I made it Thursday night, it on brown, and it’s the tuna from a can, with mayo and sweet corn mixed in.

Its a well known fact that Tuna becomes lethal if not consumed 48 hours after being put in a sandwich.

Eat it, its grand. I've eaten tuna sandwiches that have been left lying for months on end. Not a bother.

Enjoy

Is the office fridge working properly? If so, the sandwich might be ok. Bear in mind though that if it isn't ok you could be really ill with food poisoning. Is it worth it?

Sweet, that’s all I wanted to hear. On the way home, I think ill scour a few O Brien’s sandwich bins, search for some goodies in them.

Judging by the fairly severe reaction of most of the posters, I'm going to say no, its not worth it. I will probably just bin it.

Thanks for advice guys.

No. That's 3 days also, by the way. Assuming you made it Friday morning before work, it's been about 75 hours. I wouldn't eat tuna after 24 hours, tbh.

Food poisoning generally takes 12 - 48 hours to present. Just FYI.

haha, no I had a particularly busy day yesterday.

Feeling fine, no ill effects. So there ye have it, three day old tuna sandwiches are safe. Go ahead and eat with reckless abandon.
