Would you still eat food if it was expired?
I just cant.I will go a couple of days over but thats it
Depends on what it is and how far out of date.
It depends...like if milk is two days past the expiration date, it's not smelly and doesn't taste spoiled, I'll try to use it up. Cheese, never, then again cheese doesn't last long enough for it to expire. Frozen and canned food I might eat it, but the taste would have been altered, since it's been sitting for a long time.
Expired? NO, it's expired and food poisoning is no picnic.
Past the Sell by date? (which is very different) it really depends. Yogurt says it's good 7 days after the sell by. Milk is usually okay a couple days past (not always), canned stuff...a bit past, sure but it does get weird too much after (I bought a can of beans that were past the sell by -SO ANNOYING!!!!- and they were freaking WEIRD, I didn't use them). It just depends, sell by dates aren't really regulated so you have to use your best judgement with them. Eggs are good for up to 3 weeks past the sell by date, but I've met people that won't use them after that day, I will...I'd have to buy eggs 3 at a time otherwise...or get a chicken...
I guess it would depend on what it is.
