I am really almost afraid to start this thread and the debate to follow.... but I have to.
I have an unopened carton of cottage cheese, dated Feb 17th. 4 days ago. This is a SELL BY date. Usually I throw stuff away opened or not if it is past the date stamped.... sell by OR use by. It's supposed to be ok a week past the sell by date. I need it for what I'm making right now and I don't want to go get more. Am I being paranoid?
In my head, they don't put dates on stuff for no reason, bad is bad.
What do you do?
Be kind to each other boys, have at it.
