The Ultimate Food Shelf Life Guide

I love this Website! My Hubby was often dumping things when it hit their expiration date, will I was countering that they were still good. Now I have proof! According to information from the USDA, CDC, and other agencies, unopened or opened, Milk is good  for 1 week after the sell by date. After eggs are purchased, they may be refrigerated for 3 to 5 weeks - the "sell-by" date on the package, if one exists, will usually expire during that storage period, but the eggs will remain safe to use. Egg Salad — Homemade Or Store-prepared will keep 3 to 5 days in the Refrigerator. That open bottle of prepared Horseradish will keep 3 - 4 months if it's kept continuously refrigerated. An opened bottle of ketchup should stay at peak quality for about 6 months in the fridge and mustard for at least a year. And both will remain safe to consume for much longer than that, as long as they've been continuously refrigerated.

Keep it or Toss it, you just type in the name of your Food or Beverage, Store Bought or Home Made,  and it will tell you how long it's good for. Click Here to Check Out Their Website
