    Default Would you use expired AZUMAYA Tofu - extra firm?

    It expired on Aug 30, 2009.. Of course, it's sealed still. Toady, I
    am in the mood for it. How dangerous would it be if I use it?

    It's 3 months expired. Unfortunately I say toss it. Even if
    you cook it enough to kill bacteria, there may be toxins remaining.

    It it's not cloudy, it's probably OK.

    That's part of it:

    How do I know if the Azumaya® tofu has spoiled?
    If the Azumaya Tofu has spoiled, there are generally definite signs.
    For an unopened package, the package may become bloated due to a
    pressure building inside. After the package has been opened, if the
    water is cloudy or murky AND the Azumaya Tofu has a sour smell or
    taste, the tofu should not be consumed. Cloudy or murky water alone
    is not a sign of spoilage.

    When I've had spoiled tofu, the liquid around
    the block would become kinda like syrup.
    I believe the technical term is "ropy".

    I wasn't going to take a chance. Was curious to hear some comments.
    You mentioned toxins. Are they by products of chemical decompositions
    (rotting)?

    I am curious that I am going to open it now; I trid pulling the
    plastic but it didn't I'd have to use a knife and so I didn't bother.
    It's still sitting in the fridge as I didn't get to take the garbage
    out yesterday. (I keep things that can rot in fridge ro freezer until
    I take out the trash.)

    What is the shelf life of Azumaya® Tofu – opened and unopened packages?
    Azumaya Tofu has a shelf life of 70 days from the date of manufacture, which is
    represented by the Best Before Date stamped on every package. If the package is
    unopened and refrigerated, the Azumaya Tofu will last until the Best Before
    Date. We do not recommend using tofu after the best before date.

    Many bacteria produce toxins. In some cases, the toxin can be
    denatured by cooking (e.g. botulism toxin), but not in all cases.

    The suspense was killing us, and here you go and whimp out that
    easily?

    Sheesh. Go post someplace else next time.
