I hate wasted food, but I also wouldn't eat those cashews. Compost them and start again.

I should have asked you guys before I ate it: Bread with Earth Balance that had been out for a day. This wouldn't have been so bad except I forgot I had left it in my car. I didn't finish eating it because I could tell it was rancid. Now just waiting to see what my body does with it. My mouth is full of ick and I feel a little nauseous. Yuck!

Well, as you're pretty unanimous I guess I'm going to toss those cashews! :( Thanks for the advice and I'll remember the freezer tip!!! Hadn't thought of that myself...

I guess it's the same as wondering if you can eat veggies even if they've been stewing in a meat dish. (In other words, I don't think it'd be vegan.)

Considering there are bug bits in most flours/grains/canned foods I wouldn't worry about it. I fish fruit flies out of my wine frequently these days.

Yeah, I don't think accidental bug consumption or bug marination counts as non-vegan. Still, I wouldn't drink a glass of anything I left out overnight except for water or alcohol (hate to waste alcohol, have been known to finish bottles of beer the morning after parties).

If you were here it would mean enjoy by 8th October so part of me says.... be wild! But then after hearing how sick people have been after gone off tofu I say bin it. Or else leave it in the fridge for a few months to see what happens to it.

I totally just registered to this forum to ask this question. Hi everyone!
I have a half-used jar of marinara sauce in my fridge that's been chilling in there for two weeks. Edible, or will it give me the squirts? It's not, like, Barilla or one of those other mass produced kinds that might have preservatives in it. It's locally made. That sounded snobby. But it's an important detail!

THANK YOU. I have food poisoning PTSD and I'm afraid of it ever happening again.

Just had a slice of uncooked tofu (vacuum packed, bought today at the asian grocery store, "use by"-date is sept 14th) and it had a slightly acidic taste, a bit vinegar-y, and also tickled on my tounge for a second. No off smell (no smell at all, really), the water it was in was nice and clear.
I don't think I've had this brand before, other than marinated in a very spicy chili sauce we make at a cafe I volunteer at, so I can't say wheather this is the standard taste for this particular brand.

Do you think it's bad?

YES. It shouldn't taste acidic or vinegar-y at all!

I did open it! It smelled ok and wasn't covered in fuzzies. But your reaction of "no effing way" makes me think I should stop being a cheapass and find something else to eat for dinner.

If it smells good and isn't fuzzy then I think it would be fine. I'm going to admit to eating jar pasta sauce that is that old, and I don't remember getting sick at all. But mine wasn't fresh or locally made. Go at your own risk!

I'm probably more permissive in what expired food I'll eat than most, but I would say taste it. If it's gone bad you'll know.

Yeah, I'm with Olives. I'd probably eat it.

The tongue tickling is the tiny bugs on the tofu running off of it into your mouth.

You're probably already infested. Any itches you feel might be the bugs that now populate the outer layers of your skin burrowing inwards past your nerves. Once they reach your muscles your muscle fibers will clench and you will be paralyzed in an immoble rictus as the tiny bugs devour your body from the inside out. And that's why expired tofu is bad.

Spoiler: show
I made all that up, but I still wouldn't eat it. I bet you're all itchy now though.

Eww. I hope you didn't eat it. 1 week is my limit for most perishable foodstuffs. Stilltasty.com says 7-10 days. http://www.stilltasty.com/fooditems/index/18362

When something is weeks old, the other issue is how sure are you about the date? If it's more than a week, I usually can't remember. 2 weeks is iffy, but 1 month would be downright disgusting. You can't see, smell, or taste pathogenic bacterial growth.

Soaked mung beans over night... Now they smell like sulfur and the soaking water is bubbly... I'm guessing they fermented? To cook or not to cook? The smell is STRONG.

Hmm, I think I'd skip them!

How about frozen mandu (ie Korean dumplings) that have been in the freezer for about 8 months? I know they won't have gone bad, but will they be super gross?

Depends how good your freezer is about freezer burn. I would probably try them, but have a back up plan.

The Diyia package instructs one to use within 7 days of opening. How strict is that?
