Expired Food
by: Provident Living Today - Jennifer

This really needs to be a personal choice. Some people won't eat anything that is expired.

I will tell you how I handle expired food. I have found that most of it is just fine. Mayonnaise is the only thing I've found that just isn't good after the expiration date.

If the can or bottle is bulging, or the food smells or looks spoiled, I would throw it away.

Use common sense on this one.
