Expired Cake mix/ brownie mix Is it safe after the x date?

I thought I heard something about it being toxic? Anyone know and how long after x date. Thanks

This link is helpful: Woops, can't post a link yet! Site is still tasty . com & there is a "keep it or toss it" section.

Looks like brownie mix should be ok for at least awhile, although no time frame was givien. IMO, I'd still use up to 6 months or so...assuming it smells/looks fine.

There's a thing on snopes.com about it. My friend emailed it out to all her contacts the other day. It basically says that if it develops mold spores, and if you are allergic to mold, you can have a reaction to it and it can be toxic. I guess some college guy ate some pancakes even though they smelled funny and died. His friend didn't eat them because they smelled funny. It also said on there that just because a flour-based box mix is beyond it's expiration date does not mean that it will develop mold spores. Something to be cautious about, but not hyper about.

I would pour it out of the bag and look at the contents to see if it looks off. Then I'd smell it to see if it is rancid (some mixes have oil etc in them and they can go bad. You would smell it. )

I would use it if under 6 mo. and it passes the look and smell test.

I keep all my boxed stuff in the freezer, so I use expired stuff with no problem.
