Exclamation Is your milk safe?

This is a *public safety* announcement.

It has come to my attention of late that many of us are in the habit of keeping and using milk in the household kitchen well past the expiration date on the carton. Most milk cartons in the US are stamped with both 'sell by' and 'use by' dates on the top border of the carton. Unfortunately, very few consumers actually check those dates when they go to use the milk a week or so later.

Not as crazy as it sounds. How long has it been since you bought your milk? Get up RIGHT NOW, and go check the expiration date on the milk in your fridge. Do it--it's a matter of kitchen safety!

Now, I'm willing to bet that most of us have milk in there with 'use by' expiration dates well in the past. Some people will defend this by saying either, 'It's good for a week after you open it, no matter when you open it,' or (my favorite) 'They set those dates assuming it'll sit in your fridge for two weeks before you actually use it.' Hogwash in either case!

Ever get the twenty-four hour flu? There is no such thing--you've had food poisoning and didn't even know it. Little details like milk carton expiration dates are how it happens...

Anyway, just to prove how widespread this problem is, I ask everyone to go check the milk right now, then come back and vote on the poll so we may see firsthand how The Deleted fare when it comes to kitchen safety. We are on our honor to vote truthfully.

Thanks, and vive la resistance.

being a normal spoothead monkey i'll have to say the milk in my fridge is safe as long as we are talking about expiration dates. i mean my daughter drinks it so fast i hardly can follow this, even as a hardcore milk consumer.
however it is possible to start a whole experiment about the ways of life if someone ever will put olives in my fridge with the intention that I will eat them. same goes for pineapples.
as one of those exemplary areseners my answer would point out that my girlfriend holds the responsibility for making the milk sure and that she is doing a good job btw.

Expired milk? With MY family, we finish a gallon of milk almost before we get to the checkout. I don't like it much myself, though. Nasty stuff.

I have milk in tea/coffee and that's it. People who drink plain milk are freaks of nature and should be shot at the first possible oppertunity.

You're name is Nick?

I know a lot of people named Nick. Odd.

at ptdc: its just different than what you are used to. for example, I can't stand one percent milk. It takes like drinking butter to me.

Cool Guy Citizens of which galaxy?

Aaah, DSS is here.

Now we may put to rest these annoying questions of the nutritional benefits of drinking milk! Will milk make you impotent or provide the body with vital calcium? Is it laced with hormones which advance the onset of puberty in children at a statistically verifiable rate, or merely white with virginal dairy goodness? Milk master, educate us!

(Nothing to see here...)

Cool Guy Dairy goodness

You betcha. You see, Ray, there's *milk* and there's *other milk.* From the culinary point of view this is understood by the professional chef to represent the difference between milk and milk fat. Milk comes in a range of fat-percentages, each of which is used differently in the kitchen. Just plain milk by itself is called skim milk, and is frequently used in recipes which either have a high fat content already or are seeking to eliminate it. At the other end of the scale, we have half and half (which is half *milk* and half *other milk*) and heavy cream (mostly *other milk*) which provide fat to bind a recipe together or is reduced into a thicker consistency during cooking.

(Nothing to see here, either.)

Now, an alfredo sauce, which is widely popular throughout the world, consists mostly of parmesan cheese and *other milk* which has been reduced (or boiled down) into a creamy sauce. In Europe, there is a dairy product called crème frâiche which is pretty much all *other milk* and has a creamy, sauce-like consistency even before it has been cooked.

This concludes today's class on milk.

Cool Guy Got milk?

Why, whatever are you hominids prattling on about now? We're having frank discussions about kitchen safety, food-borne illnesses transmissible by milk...and milk in general.

(Really nothing to see here at all.)

Milk jokes!

Q: Why did cats domesticate humans?
A: So they could get milk without getting their heads stepped on.

Q: Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free?
A: Steak.

...So this milkman knocks on the door to find this gorgeous blonde woman in a bath robe, who wants him to fill her bath tub with milk so she can take a milk bath. 'Pasteurized?' he asks, and she says, 'No, just up to my nipples.'

Who else got milk jokes? Eh?
