My sister clued me in on this website today:
A lot of good info there about food safety and about what expiration dates, best by dates, etc really mean.
I do not have a sense of smell, and all these years I have thrown out milk (or put it down for the dogs) on the expiration date. Who knew that I had another whole WEEK before it would probably go bad!
I probably still won't save it the whole week (because I cannot rely on my nose, I have to play it safe)...but I will start drinking it up to about 3-4 days past expiration. That way I'll be well within the safe zone.
My dogs have had a LOT of milk over the years - bet they will rue the day my sister sent me that link!
