Can you eat expired Greek yogurt?
If Greek yogurt is properly sealed and refrigerated at the right temperature, it can be safe to eat yogurt 14 to 24 days after the sell-by date, but the taste will become more sour as the product gets older. The longer the yogurt sits in the fridge, the more watery substance forms on top of the yogurt.
Can I get sick from expired Greek yogurt?
Eating expired yogurt can cause food poisoning or foodborne illness. According to Mayo Clinic, foodborne illnesses are caused by bacteria that can occur through improper food handling. To prevent such a reaction, check expiration dates on yogurt packaging and do not consume it past the expiration date.
How can you tell if Greek yogurt has gone bad?
Look for a larger-than-normal amount of liquid on the surface (don’t worry, Greek yogurt is especially prone to some, but if there’s more than usual that’s a warning sign), a curdling texture near the bottom, and any sign of mold. These indicate the entire product has probably gone bad, say the folks at StillTasty.
