"expired" yogurt -- how long is safe?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So found a bunch of yogurt hiding in back of the fridge.

2 qty - 28 oz Brown Cow yogurt - best buy date 11-11-09. Brand new, never opened, looks fine.

Still safe? Should I only use it in a cooked recipe? Or can we make smoothies with it?

thoughts? feedback?

I admit that I've used yoghurt after it's expiry date - but only a day or so later. Almost 2 months? I wouldn't risk it.

I've used yogurt that old....I smell/taste it for funky-ness (I find bad yogurt to be VERY funky) and then proceed. I would think cooking it would be totally fine. But I am totally a use after expired kinda person

smell it and taste it. and be sure to look through it for mold chunks otherwise eat up!

one time I ate some old yogurt an it tasted just fine until I realized the chunks of mold in my mouth! ewwww! I didn't eat yogurt for a long while after that!

Smell it and if it's still white, it should be fine. If it's tinged pink or orange, toss it.

Both of these I also look on the lid because sometimes mold is on the lid but not noticeable on the product yet.
