Does milk go bad after one day past the expiration date?

This is probably a stupid question, but how many days past the expiration date is it dangerous to drink the milk?

    Milk it one of those foods, if you smell it and taste it, and it seems fine, it is fine. If its gone bad, well you will know!

    Milk can go bad even before the expiration date. It all depends on if it's been kept cooled properly. Just smell it each time you use it.....you'll know when it's starting to turn.

    No. A couple days after the expiraton date; it will still be safe to drink. I hope this helped!

    It's usually ok as long as it's been kept cold. you know when milk's not good to drink- it smells off too. :-)

    Usually not if it was refrigerated properly. If it smells OK than it's fine

    If it tastes ok, then it is ok. You will know when milk goes bad. It smells, tastes, and looks gross.

    Eh, depends. Sometimes it may, sometimes it may not. You will be able to smell it, and if it smells unappetizing, it probably is unappetizing. You should be safe after 1 day though.

    Source(s): Working in a restaraunt. We use milk in some of our dishes and while we don't put anything in that's past it's exp date, I have drinken and not died.

    Just smell it before you use it. Its fine to use until it smells funky
