Help - is it safe?!

Kraft Original BBQ sauce. Unopened and dated Aug 2015.
Tasted it and it seemed fine. But I cannot trust my taste buds.
Save me a last minute trip to go get some more.
Is it safe and should I trust it?
Thanks.

Help!

It's vinegar based, right? Should be fine. I'd use it, but that's just me. Others may have other opinions.

NO it is possibly not safe......give me your address and I will come right over and be your taster, to be sure you are safe! ha ha... it's probably good, the vinegar, the sugar, the salt, it's probably safe until 2030. <wink wink face>

Of course its not safe. The first ingredient is high fructose corn syrup, and its coloured with red dye #40!

I agree that it is safe to eat. Now, is it good to eat? That's subjective.

Use it RB.

You've tasted it and you ain't dead yet so it's proved itself safe.

Very few products have an expiration date. It's a "Best By Date".
The quality past that date "may" suffer and the manufacturer is stating only that.

I've eaten many things past the date stamped on the can and lived.

Some of them the US government gave me to eat. Things canned in the 40's and 50's were fed to me in the 60's and 70's.

Take it all on a case by case basis.

I am late to the party, as usual, but from my Food Safe Level II training, you can use it once, but once it is opened, any that is left should be used right away or chucked. It is like taking meat out of the freezer - the 3 day rule doesn't apply once it is past the date.
