All dairy products are very perishable. For the best quality and taste, use the product before the “Sell By” date and keep it stored between 33°F – 40°F.
Keep in mind, the date on the package isn’t necessarily the date you need to discard the product. The product may be fine to use for a number of days past the date. Handling of the product will determine the number of days the product will be good after the product’s date. Time spent out of refrigeration is the greatest factor in reducing shelf life.
Use your good judgment. If the product smells, looks, and taste fresh, it’s likely okay for consumption.
