Answer . In general adminstration of expired drugs is not recommended. The expiration date on most drugs does not mean that afterwards the drug will be toxic, but the percentage of the active constituant will decrease below the effective level, Except in few cases, drug can actually be harmfull…. Avoid adminstration of drugs that have been expired for 2-3 month at most, this includes predinsone (predinsolone), and other cortisone like drugs. ( Full Answer )
After the expiration date, you shouldn't eat canned goods. Safelyconsuming canned goods means that they are eaten before theexpiration date.
There is no magic date. It will depend on the quality of the food to begin with, the quality and type of container and the subsequent handling and storage thereof. Even canned, food will degrade and change color, texture and flavor. I have used some items that were a year past the coded date. They w…ere edible, but I could tell the difference when compared to newer product. Many canned foods are coded with 2 and even 3 year shelf lives. But for best quality and nutrition, plan to use canned goods within a year. If you are trying to maintain a cache of canned foods, use product throughout the year and replace it with fresh stock. Use the FIFO method - First In First Out. Always use the oldest items first. ( Full Answer )
"Pure" vanilla extract is, in effect, a liqueur and should have an indefinite shelf life provided it is stored properly.
Each manufacturer can have their own coding system. The code in the discussion area could be interpreted many ways, but the only way to know for certain would be for you to contact the manufacturer or distributor listed on the can's label.

Most of the time, foods don't suddenly go bad the day after the "expiration date". Use your own best judgement. If the texture is different, the appearance looks odd or the odor is off, don't use it. When in doubt, throw it out.
Not long. . Is your epiration date really a "sell buy date?" Often meats we buy are. Check the package. Then you probably have about 2-3 days.. My grandma always said, "if in doubt throw it out."

After the expiration date, it should no longer be used. Drug molecules degrade over time, and chances are the concentration of drug in there is depleted.

no, the drug starts to loose it stability and is not safe after the expiration date.
Not that long and diet never. It goes bad when the date say's so. Although, if I were thursty I would probly give a can coke a try.
It isn't. That's why it's called an "expiration date." Eating it past that date could be harmful, and you risk getting a disease such as E. Coli.. If the food was stored properly as indicated on the package, the food is good to eat quite long after the expiration date. The expiration date is simila…r to a guarantee, for consumers; for example, restaurants. If you see any change in the food or are not sure, or have doubts, throw the food away.. If the food is not stored properly as indicated on the package label it may be bad long before the expiration date. ( Full Answer )
You should probably throw a cake mix away after it reaches the end of its expiration date. When something expires, it means it isn't good anymore.
If it has been frozen the whole time yes. If the expiration or best-by date was for fresh product, freezing it extended the shelf life. There is no risk of bacterial growth at 0Â°F, but cured meats don't last as long in the freezer as you would think due to flavor changes. Use the ham within 1-2 m…onths of freezing. ( Full Answer )

That depends upon the type of yeast - fresh compressed cake, active dry or rapid-rise. If you are talking about the fresh compressed yeast cake, I would not plan on using it after the expiration date. The activity may be too little and you'd be wasting your time and ingredients. I have stored rap…id-rise in my freezer and used it successfully significantly beyond the expiration. But I check the activity before use. To do that, dissolve 1tsp sugar in 1/2 cup warm water in a one-cup measure. Sprinkle in 2 1/4 tsp dry yeast. After 10 minutes, if the yeast is properly active, it should have bubbled up to the one-cup mark and you can use it in your recipe. If it doesn't get there, the yeast should be discarded.

It doesn't. Expiration dates are on there for a reason. Keeping things after that date is inviting the possibility for it to become spoiled.
about a week...but look at the mixture and make sure there isn't any bacteria or clumps
It's not! Medications are given expiration dates based on how long they have been proven to contain the active ingredient at a certain percentage. Although many medications simply become less effective past the expiration date, there are several medications that may become toxic and dangerous once p…ast the expiration date.

I just drank a Boost that expired February 1, 2007. Nearly 5 years later it tastes exactly as it's supposed to. I would guess the nutritional value is still the same, and since it's sealed I don't see how it would go bad. Consistency is perfectly normal, too. Drink up!
The date on the mayonnaise is likely not an expiration, but a "bestby" date. The concern would not be food safety, but food quality -since the pH of commercially prepared mayo should not support thegrowth of pathogens, but the fats could be rancid. If the jar isstill properly sealed and just a few d…ays beyond the date, youcould open it and give it a sniff test. How well it has keptdepends upon several things, including storage conditions (heat,exposure to light, etc.) Whether or not you use it is up to you. Mayo isn't all thatexpensive and you wouldn't want rancid mayo to ruin your recipe. ( Full Answer )
I wouldn't advise taking it after it has expired, though, I doubt it's dangerous. The main reason there is an expiration date is because after a certain amount of time the medicine loses potency and doesn't work as well as it had originally.

Well, on the day after the expiration date, it should still be OK to eat. Just don't wait a week or so to eat it again because it will turn moldy and sticky .
Usually, you can keep most food longer by keeping it tightly sealed and storing it in a dry, cool place. If it starts to smell different or change color, it's time to toss it out.
Not long. Cottage cheese is low in fat, (like yoghurt), and high in water, so it's keeping qualities are similar as to yoghurt. A solid cheese (like cheddar) is primarily made of fat and very little water, so it is really well preserved and will keep for a week or two beyond it's use by date. Cottag…e cheese will not.

It depends on how it's stored, but it won't go off the momentthe date turns midnight. It will deteriorate with time, but themost likely thing is that once opened and cut, it will dry out. Itmay also attract mould - I simply trim the mouldy bits off. . + . Incidentally, "expiry" is a shorter and ra…ther more elegantadjective than "expiration". ( Full Answer )
I would not recommend eating anything that has passed it's expiration date, eating such products may cause food poisoning.
I would not use it as it breaks down chemically. Take your unusedexpired prescriptions to any local pharmacist, preferably your own;they have programs to dispose of unused meds. Your city or countymay also have information on safe disposal locations. DO NOT FLUSHmedications down the toilet or dispos…e of them in your sink. Thiswould pollute the water supply as most municipal water depts. donot filter out such things. Many psych meds have a litany of sideeffects, and can be contraindicated for people who have otherconditions. For those who are in dire need for say one dose until seeing theDoc on Monday, properly stored away from heat, light, and excessmoisture or as directed, many non-liquid preparations are often okfor a few months or maybe longer past expiration, but usediscretion. Some drugs have been shown to have partial efficacyyears after labelled expiration dates, again be aware this is apotential risk and meds lose potency over time. DO NOT take anitbiotics past expiration dates, these were shown inthe 1960's to become toxic. ( Full Answer )
