Would You?

Pillsbury crescent rolls dated 2/2015. I plan to use them tonight. In a few minutes.
Feedback much appreciated!

Assuming they were properly refrigerated, I sure would. The date is probably for the useful life of the yeast rather than spoilage.

I probably wouldn't. I've always adhered to those dates very strictly. But I was reading about this just the other day and it seems that we don't risk much by using things past their date, so maybe it's a good idea. :)

Probably due to their fear of being sued, many manufacturers are over cautious with their "sell by" and "use by" dates, according to an article I read recently in a food magazine.

Try them, if you're still alive tomorrow drop us a line

Seriously, though, there may be a slight loss of quality although I wouldn't think so if they were dated only last month

I'd use 'em. It's still March. A month isn't that long.

Thanks. The chicken casserole is in the oven.
As to quality, they were sub par at purchase from Costco.
It seems the 4 pack (we bought two packs) were not as attractive and uniform as the crescents we buy in the individual containers at the grocery store.

I will report on any ill effects....lol

I'd use 'em w/out worry as well. Taste might not be perfect, but I don't think there are any safety issues to be concerned about.

I would sniff them when I opened up the package. If they look and smell okay, I would use them.

It's worth remembering that the smell test doesn't always help. Some food poisoning toxins, including some variants of botulism, are odourless.
