I wouldn't but then I eat nothing past its use by date. Might risk it if it was best before the day before.

Yes, it's still good for weeks yet.

I would eat it if it was three days past its use by date and I had dropped it on the floor, but then I have no standards. blush

I would eat it, deffo.
Give it the good old sniff test. Might be a bit stale, but if it's not off in any way it won't do you any harm.

I've been doing Weight Watchers for two weeks - I'd eat the first pizza ever made.

But yes, yes I would. What could go off? Do you really throw cheese away 2 days after opening? I don't!

Bread has nothing mingy that will harm you, salami is smoked and keeps for months, tomato sauce is harmless - go for it.

Don't like pizza. Bleurgh!

However considering what it's made of I would. No raw meat or anything like that.

What's on it?

I think cheese can be pretty dangerous if it's gone off, but then I expect you'd smell it if it wasn't right.

I'd have a good whiff around it and if ok I'd eat it

Cheese is already 'gone off' in a sense. It's also full of fat and salt which are both good preservatives. So I wouldn't worry about the cheese.

I'd eat it. You cook it, after all. As long as the cheese is bubbling and just starting to brown, any (unlikely) nasties will be killed off.

With things I don't heat(milk, yogurts etc.) I generally go a day over, but no more. Wouldn't with meat or fish, but then I don't eat it.

DH's mantra is "is it green, or does it smell?" if not, then fine... grin

We both used to work in a food manufacturing company, and know that there is 'leeway' in best before and even use by dates.
In fact, we spent most of our 20's living off out-of-code food we got free from the company shop!

General rule of thumb would be not to risk out of date meat or meat products if pregnant, with young children or elderly.
Products like pate particularly.

Things cooked at high temp - less of an issue.

colditz Mon 21-Jan-08 17:55:18

i too used to work in a food factory, and I know there is a good couple of days margin with most things. They err on the side of caution ... and I don't consider pizza to be risky. Pate is risky, and prawn salad, not pizza though.

Can I add to a 11 year and 10 day old thread?

Would you eat one 3 days past its date?

I was thinking of putting it in the freezer?

I bet MN standards are pretty similar to 2008 grin

Yes, and some, if it looks and smells ok.

Bluesheep8 Thu 07-Feb-19 15:48:00

Yes I'd eat it...then and now wink
