Anyone know if unopened Polly-O Mozzarella cheese about 6 months past expiry date can be still used? It's been sitting in the fridge. It looks fine, no weird discoloration nor bubbles.
It is likely fine. Give it a sniff, then a taste, to make sure.
taste it (a small bit) if it tastes "off" - like blue cheese - , toss. Properly packaged and refrigerated it may be fine though. Dairy lets you know - if it smells or tastes bad, its bad, if not you are OK.
I generally ignore best by dates, if the package is marked that way, open up a section and give it the smell test.
How are you using it?Plain or baked, like on a pizza?
If it's gooey, stinky, or mouldy, toss it out... if it's still dry and smells okay, then it IS okay. Cheese is great until mould spores get into it, then it goes south pretty fast.
