No mold then you'll be fine! Use by dates are often wrong :) Even dairy products last longer than the use by date if stored correctly. I think they just make the dates sooner for worst case scenarios like when people leave milk out for a while then put it back in the fridge over and over and then seem surprised when it goes off before the use by date :)
Veg usually get a sour smell when bad as well. I've made root veg before that had a tiny bit of mold forming from moisture in the fridge, just peeled them and they were fine too.
