Health Tip: Milk and Its Sell-By Date

(HealthDay News) -- The date printed on your milk carton is not an expiration date, it's the milk's sell-by date, says the Dairy Council of California. It may be safe to drink milk a few days after the sell-by date.

The Dairy Council of California encourages consumers to:

  • Store milk between 38 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • After purchasing milk, drive straight home and refrigerate it.
  • Never leave milk out for an extended period.
