I would take it back to Costco. Bulging containers worry me and Costco has an awesome return policy.

Oh yeah, I threw out the molasses. I can't bear the thought of the customer service line at Costco and molasses is pretty cheap.

The thing is, one time we had bad silken tofu it was really rank/sour smelling and this... just smelled like tofu.


Yesterday I found a package of silken tofu in the fridge that was 3 years out of date. Against my better judgment I opened it up. It was like someone took a used diaper and strapped it to my face. The tofu itself looked like a finely crumbled blue cheese.

So there's been a recall on cumin where I live due to salmonella contamination. I'm throwing away the spice I have in my cupboard but do I need to throw out everything I made with it too?I just stocked up my freezer with a huge batch of seitan, some falafel, burgers, a couple of curries etc and whilst I definitely don't want to get sick it feels bad to throw out that much food. But on the other hand salmonella even cooked is gross. What would ppk do?

Didn't you already accidentally ingest some of that while you were cooking the things? If you didn't already get sick I'd say the things you've made are fine! None of the reports on the recall actually report anyone getting sick, just that tests picked up a problem in a few batches.

I bought a couple of bottles of GT's kombucha last night, and asked my roommate to put them in the fridge, but they only saw one in the bag. The other sat in my backpack overnight, so it was unrefrigerated for about twelve hours. Still sealed. I put it back in the fridge...

It's fermented, and I'd be fine leaving unopened beer at room temperature, but not unopened yoghurt! I'm not sure how obvious bad kombucha would be.

I left a few items out overnight (well, about 36 hours) at room temperature from an office potluck. These are all store-bought, not homemade:

Pickled turnips
Almond-stuffed green olives in brine
Vegan antipasto

I'm thinking they might be all right because of the acidity, but what say you, PPK?

I have 2 blocks of Daiya I forgot about. They both expired March 10th but are unopened. Not sure if they are ok or not, anyone know how far out they set those dates?

The olives are probably fine, not sure about the rest.

I've had shredded Daiya grow mold in the freezer, so I tend to be pretty respectful of their expiry dates.

The pickled turnips should be fine as well - no one used to refrigerate pickled veggies. I'm not sure what vegan antipasto is though...

If it isn't moldy or slimey, and unopened and stored properly, it is probably is fine.

So I've bought dandelion leaves from the store before but when my husband said our front yard was full of them and he was going to pull them, I told him to grab then and I'd cook them. I have a healthy fear of foraging although I know plenty of people do it. If there happens to be a plant that looks like dandelion but isn't, we may be in trouble but google has failed me. Any reason not to eat greens with a yellow flower sprouting from them? :)

Okay, I already ate this, but I'm coming here to either brace myself for getting sick or stop worrying about it. I made Isa's Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes with Three Grain Tempeh (it had brown rice in it) and left one of them out on the counter for seven hours (it was covered in aluminum foil). I think the only thing that would be highly perishable is the brown rice in the tempeh (but since it's in a fermented product is it okay?). The Just Mayo I used in them was one of the only other things in the recipe that needed to be refrigerated, but I don't think that would've gone bad after seven hours on the counter. I heated it up in the microwave before I ate it. It was warm, but not piping hot.

Give us an update - did you eat them, and how were they?

There are "false dandelions" out there too, but their leaves are a bit fuzzy and the flower stems are longer and stiffer than true dandelions, and the flowers are branched rather than single. I think most of the "dandelions" sold fresh in stores are really a type of chicory called Catalogna. Google it and you can see pictures. If allowed to flower, they'd be blue.

If they're not moldy I'd eat them too.

I once famously ate a packet of dried ramen noodles that was a year past its sell-by date. (But I chucked the ramen base and used a fresh one.) And they were okay. So I thought, yes, they're fresh udon noodles, but what's a couple of days? Looked okay, smelled okay. Tasted okay. :)

I have no idea if it's a good idea to have done this but I've gathered dandelions from unkempt lawns for my guinea pig and myself, and it's always been fine.

Are the false dandelions outright dangerous? I'm pretty sure I've eaten them before.

I've eaten quite a few "past the expiry date" vegan bars and I've never seen mold or tasted anything off. They've always been really hard and stale though, like hard enough to break a tooth.
