I think that happens at the store/market level. We don't have any problems with milk purchased from Sprouts or Kroger - often the milk is good a day or two after the date, but have had issues with other stores with milk going bad 4 days before the expiration date!

That's only happened to me at a little mini mart where I get gasoline. I no longer grab a gallon of milk while I'm there. It's never happened at Albertsons or Staters - we have a little 'drive through dairy' here, it's never happened there, either.

That usually happens because the store let it sit outside of the refrigeration units too long. When deliveries of milk are made, they should be handled immediately. I see that happen so often.

I blame it on the plastic bag (here in Canada, most milk is "bottled" in plastic bags). Once opened, the milk is exposed to air. With jugs or cartons, at least you can seal the container. I don't buy bagged milk.

I cannot grasp milk in a bag. Any pics available to show. Is the bag in a box with a spout for pouring?

Before opening the bag (you can buy special "cutters" to clip the corner), you have to put it in a pitcher.

And, you have to "burp" it when you drop it in the pitcher before you open it and you can't clip too much off the corner or you end up with milk spilling or the bag collapsing into the pitcher. I am convinced this is a skill one learns in kindergarden. I did not learn this skill and can't tell you how frustrated I've been since 1987 dealing with bags of milk. I only buy milk in cartons or gallon jugs. I use my milk jug to measure out the Girls feed.

I learned it as an adult. I don't use a special cutter, just scissors. I don't find it goes off faster than closed bottles, cartons, jugs. I will admit that I didn't much care for them at first. Now, it's my preferred way to buy milk.

And just to confuse the issue, the bag of 4 litres of milk only has 3 bags inside, each 1 1/3 litre.

But then, I didn't go to kindergarten (nor did I live in Canada then).
