Thread: Outdated sour cream

    Default Outdated sour cream

    Just discovered a carton of 14% sour cream in the back of the fridge
    with a year-old expiry date. Upon opening discovered that it smells
    fine and looks fine. Would there be any danger in eating this on my
    baked potatoes?

    14% is fine. 16% might be deadly.

    When in doubt....throw....

    Going to the icebox and look at what percentage we have.

    ...and that is a challenge for everyone to report on their percentage.

    Thanks Mr. Bill. I tried it for supper and it was just fine.
    Production methods have really changed over the years with better
    filtration, pasteurization and sanitation. Our milk and cream often
    goes over the expiration date without going sour or rotten. This was
    not the case when I was a young man...we were lucky if milk kept more
    than two or three days.

    I've had sour cream that was way past the use by date, but not opened, and it
    was fine. I've also had sour cream that was opened and been in the fridge for
    a couple of weeks, that started to grow funny coloured mould.

    So I think it's a case of use it quickly, and don't leave it sit opened for
    too long.


    When you think about it, it's really quite funny.... having a "use by date"
    on sour cream!!

    Death. Dysentery. Botulisms. Spontaneous brain explosions. Reduced
    sexual drive. Suicidal tendencies. Limbs falling off unexplainably.
    Hemorrhaging. Blindness.

    Other than that, it should be fine.

    If you ever keep sour cream long enough for it to go bad, you'll
    understand the difference.

    At least today's sour cream is created with a culture of desired
    bacteria rather a melange of nature's mix so it is of consistent

    I had one that definitely tasted like it had gone bad and smelled
    wrong too, but it didn't have any colors other than white.

    You wouldn't read about it!! I had a look inb thje fridge and low and
    behold, there's some old sour cream, opened, that's starting to grow
    stuff. I'll have to leave it a coupole of days and see what transpires in
    the way of colours.

    If you store opened sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt and other stuff
    like that upside down in the fridge, it will last a LOT longer. I
    don't know the science behind it, but try it if you don't believe me.

    I do that with tomato paste, and it doesn't grow any fungus. But we probably
    have different containers to you for the sour cream etc. We have little
    platic tubs with lids that don't fit well enough to have them sitting upside
    down in the fridge.
