I have to look at the bottle. I figured since it is cranberry juice, the acidic nature would prevent anything germy. And it is just juice, no preservatives or other nonsense in there. I tend toward the side of caution, so I will probably toss it anyway....thanks for the thoughts.

You could call the customer care dept. #(usually located on the product or via web site) and pose the question to them. Otherwise, if it's in question...toss it.

if it were unopened I would say go for it, but since it is open, I would pitch it.

I always suggest the safe route---pitch it. It is not worth the risk of food poisoning.

If no one has actually put their mouth on the bottle (thereby introducing bacteria).... Juice can sort of "sour" though. I wouldn't drink month-old orange juice, for the souring reason. But cranberry? Personally if nothing fuzzy and moldy looking is floating around in it, and it smells ok, I'd probably taste a little and see.

Just taste a little. If it seems OK then it probably is. I'm sure it's full of preservatives.

I have a bottle of cranberry juice in the fridge that has been in there open over a month. Is it still ok to drink?
