How do I know if my food’s gone bad?

Spoiling food sucks. Finding food that expired a day or two ago is pretty close. Sometimes when whatever food product I’ve missed the expiration date by is expensive/tasty/I’m-craving-for, I’ll disregard the labeled date and eat it on the spot. I had some Trader Joe’s honey Greek yogurt that met this fate a few days ago. Since I usually feel fine, this habit of mine lives on.

This brings up an interesting point–if the labeled date doesn’t stop me from eating, when do I toss out the food? The folks at Visual.ly have a nice little chart that tells you shelf lives of common food items when stored on the counter, in the refrigerator, or in the freezer.  Here’s the source.
