    32 oz of fat-free, organic vanilla yogurt. Unopened with the plastic still intact. Should I eat it for breakfast tomorrow? Has a sell by date of 12/12/12.

    Yogurt is already soured. It's really only when it starts to mold that it's "gone bad".

    This... It'll get more tart over time, but it's fine if it isn't moldy.

    bacteria and fungis can spontaneously generate, so even if a yogurt is sealed it will end up getting cultures. you dont want to eat it. fresh yogurt is only 50 cents

    1. Buy new yogurt same size and brand
    2. Go back to store with new receipt and old yogurt
    3. Tell service desk you didn't notice old date, exchange for new or return for refund
    4. Ask Jesus for forgiveness on your deathbed

    What happens to yogurt when it goes bad? Does it turn back into milk?

    So i opened the yogurt this morning and decided not to eat it. It smelled fine, but what was wierd was that it had congealed into a cylinder. When I would squeeze the container, the yogurt would just maintain its cylindrical form. Also, it seemed grainy when I stirred it.

    Wish I would have seen dank's post before I opened; I wouldn't have even needed to complete step 4.

    This seems pertinent.

    Why don't you open it and find out?
    I have eaten expired yogurt before, when I have opened and made sure it was still edible.
    I refuse to waste good yogurt, it is one of my favorite things ever.

    if it's been in the fridge ~4-8C all this time, it is perfectly fine. In fact, it should be fine for several months.

    only problem would be if you had opened it, ate from the carton with a spoon from your filthy mouth, and replaced the same carton.

    Hahaha, yogurt is nasty don't eat it past the expiration. I wouldn't eat it based on taste. It wouldn't kill you. But why would you want to eat it?

    The pickle on the other hand, those things last practically forever unopened.

    Having just gone through the worst food poisoning of my life, involving a visit to the ER, two bags of IV fluid, and a week of needing to be within 30 seconds of a toilet for one thing or another o_O, throw the damn yogurt away!

    Semi-dried yogurt is some sort of cheese, right? OP should have opened and left it in the fridge for a few more days.
