Unopened wheel of brie in the fridge, just noticed it is dated best before Nov. 8, 2010. Still good right?

I'd toss it if it isn't pasteurized.

It says pasteurized milk. <hopeful>

I'd taste it and see - if it's a packaged cheese it's highly unlikely to be unpasteurized. Cheese from a cheese counter doesn't come packaged and so doesn't have a sell by date, so I doubt it's totally critical. But Brie really shouldn't be kept in the fridge (pedant! grin)

Yes: you say it's a " best before" date - that's advisory, not a food safety (which would be "use by".

I would open and consider. I imagine it would be fine tbh
