  • It's almost a month out-dated. I'd throw it out.

  • When it looks or smells funny at our house. lol. If you were going to get sick it would be pretty quick.

  • I think you would know if it was spoiled--it would look and smell bad. The date is a guideline....a few days PAST the date won't hurt.

  • It doesn't last long enough in our house to know, but I do know my MIL uses it for months past the date and it's never affected them. She keeps it refrigerated constantly of course, and I know I've eaten foods of hers with outdated MW, and I had no problems either. If it tasted fine, you'll be fine.

  • I throw it out within 5 days of the expiration date. You cannot always tell something is spoiled by sight, smell or taste. Better safe than sorry.

  • I never use food after the expiration date. I've seen enough food poisoning, to not want to experience it for myself.

  • I throw away things once they smell gross, or if there is mold.
    So if it still smells and tastes fine then it should be okay to eat still.

  • Food poison within 24 hours. You'll know. You'll be in the bathroom with it coming out both ways... hope it doesn't happen to you! When you're dealing with egg products, best to stay close to the date. if it starts separating and you can see the oil, don't even bother opening it. just trash it.
