You just can't arbitrarily assign a date to when it goes bad. There's no formula for saying today it's good, tomorrow it will be bad, and certainly no crystal ball. My DH will not drink milk after the date printed on the bottle. But he will try milk that is obviously spoiled (to my nose!) because it hasn't reached the date printed. I've explained to him that those dates are not accurate--they don't represent conditions the milk has been kept under, when it was actually opened, etc. Still, he just is phobic about those dates.
