What REALLY Happens If You Eat Expired Mayo?

It is possible that expired mayonnaise can make you sick. Eating anything that has gone past its expiration date can do that!

Over time, harmful bacteria, molds, or yeasts can multiply in the mayonnaise, potentially causing foodborne illnesses when consumed.

HOWEVER If your mayo is only 1-2 weeks past expiration it is probably still okay to eat.

Be sure to check the taste, smell, and consistency of your mayo before you use it!

To extend the shelf life of mayonnaise: - keep it tightly sealed - refrigerated - ensure it's not cross-contaminated

Checking the expiration date on the label and practicing good food safety habits are recommended to avoid consuming spoiled mayo.
