Q:

How long can you keep yogurt at room temperature?

A:

Yogurt is a dairy product that can spoil within 24 hours if left out at room temperature. Keep uneaten yogurt refrigerated to avoid spoilage.

Store unopened yogurt in the refrigerator for seven to 10 days past its printed sell-by date. Do not store opened yogurt for more than five to seven days.

It is possible to freeze yogurt indefinitely, but it will lose its flavor and quality after one to two months. Always thaw out frozen yogurt in the refrigerator and never at room temperature.

If yogurt becomes runny, clumpy or produces a foul odor, consider it spoiled. Discard the product to avoid the risk of foodborne illness.

    How long does canned soup stay good?

    A:

    Similar to other canned products, such as vegetables, canned soup lasts for up to 2 years if it is unopened. Often, canned products list a best-by date, which is not the same as an expiration date. Canned products like soup are still edible after the best-by date passes; however, there may be a noticeable loss of flavor.
