Exactly. Plus after pastuerization, the most common degradation of milk components is quality related and will not make you sick.Originally posted by: conjur
There's a reason that is called the "sell-by" date and not an "expiration" date.
You won't unless post-processing contamination occured and/or the milk was not stored under ideal storage conditions (refigeration temperature or below).Originally posted by: atom
I usually start checking the milk carefully 4-5 days after the sell by date. Haven't gotten sick yet..........
so i shouldnt be letting my 2 yr old test it to see if its "yucky"?Originally posted by: Jzero
Did you ever notice that the sell-by date is earlier for NYC? Do you honestly think the milk sours faster in NYC?
If it passes the sniff test, it's good.
