Does the Yoghurt say "Use by" or " Best Before"

if use by then no if best before then maybe, but because it's a dairy product I think you should just toss it away to be on the safe side! xxx

Do not try to risk it. Just dispose the yoghurt! My mom is able to eat expired dairy products (if it is expired for a day or two) with no problems, but I am unable to.

Since yogurt is basically soured milk to begin with, how could it get much worse?  I've eaten it up to a year past whatever date is marked on the container.  Unless there's mold; which I doubt could happen unless the seal was broken, it's fine to eat.  Would you throw away a beer if it's expiration, or sell by date has passed?  Not me!  I think you are worrying for nothing!

hahahahahahahhaa that' so funny, l was thinking the same thing!!!!

I'll usually eat yogurt that's up to a month past the expiration date...my mom will eat it when it expired six months ago. No one's ever gotten sick yet :)

If the texture, odor, or taste has changed, you probably shouldn't eat it, otherwise, I bet you'd be fine.
