This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I believe the linked question answers this pretty effectively. Generally the answer is yes, it's still safe if it's not showing obvious signs of going off. – Aaronut Apr 12 '11 at 2:45

The expiration date is merely a suggestion. It might well be good for months to come-- as long as green moss doesn't start growing on it, it will be fine.
