    As long as you are familiar with the taste and smell of the food, and it still tastes and smells the same after expiry date, then, for me, it is still good.

    my view on "best before" date is exactly so you'll throw away packaged food that you didn't consume para bumili ka ng bago

    to keep the wheels of commerce turning

    staphylococcal food poisoning.
    the taste and odor of the food is usually not altered, even as it is already teeming with the toxin.

    botulism. salmonellosis (typhoid).
    the taste and odor of the food are unchanged.
    the only clue (for botulism) is the bloated state of the tin can.

    That's what I do. We've had expired SPAM before. If the can isn't under pressure (bulging out), the meat smells like SPAM, and I don't see visible mold on the meat? I eat it.

    I've seen expired Underwood liverwurst spread that actually had mold inside that looked like penicillin. I toyed with the idea of skimming off the mold and eating the rest. But, the wife grabbed it and threw it away.
