Foods to toss after expiration

When organising the cupboard & fridge, we've all encountered this. 

We sort through food & packaging & notice the expiration date has passed. Yikes! Should you toss it out even if it seems fine? Depending. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, many goods are acceptable to eat after their best-by and sell-by dates pass. 

The FDA doesn't control these dates, so they're mostly used to assess when food tastes best. 

If the food hasn't spoiled, you can consume it. Meat and other dairy items have stricter expiration dates. 

If you don't want to risk an extra ill day, throw the other foods on this list after their expiration dates.
