  • Smell it and find out. I think you should be okay though.

  • smell it. . .does it smell ok. . . ??? just FYI. . . it is human nature to be lactose intolerant. . .it was only in more modern times that people started drinking milk as a staple during food shortages and famine. . .

  • Well you can tell if it smells bad , smell it first before drinking it to avoid getting a tummy ache

  • I think it will be OK. I have had milk several days past the date and it was fine. The date is more of a sell by date and the milk stays good for awhile longer.

  • Usually milk is still good for a few days past the expiration date. And it's not an expiration date, it's a "sell by" date, the final date the milk should be sold. It allows for storage time at home. But give it a smell, if it smells funny, toss it.
