If it was just mushrooms I'd say yes but it's probably a creamy sauce so that's a no from me ( even if it was in date )

"Use by"?

Or

"Sell by"?

If it actually says "sell by" go ahead and use it.

If it says "use by", and is only three days then[shrug] I would still use it.

^^ Yes, it's a creamy sauce . This may sound odd, but I do try to coordinate the order of what lunch and dinner items are eaten first, so as to eat things before or on the use by date . As you can see I'm far from perfect at it . I'd written a list but had failed to include the sauces I was going to have with the tortellini I'd bought.

It's not always easy when it comes to doing the weekly shop, as items can fall into a narrow range as to their 'use by ' date

^ that sounds sensible not odd , but if it is odd I'm an odd'un too :lol:

I'm forever chucking things in the freezer as things get eaten out of date order ( slightly annoying :twisted: )

This. I don't trust even slightly old cream, or cream left out for a short time.

I had that Gastro-enteritis once... it was 'orrible. Good way to lose weight quickly, though.

Chuck it away.

I've heard one way to desensitize yourself to emetophobia was to eat something past its due date. I thought that was the worst advice ever. Although I think it depends on what food it is and how long since it's expired. A potato chip probably wouldn't harm you, but anything with eggs, dairy products, fish, meat...?

Better cautious than nauseous. :eew: That's my motto. :lol:
