I bought some tofu at the store about a month ago (or was it two months?). Anyway, I haven't eaten it all and it's sitting in my fridge in tupperware. How long is it good for?

Throw it out.

Tofu has a very short life. Once opened it can last up to 5 days in the refrigerator, but only if you store it submerged in water, and change it daily.

if you're still in doubt, take a whiff of it... then you'll be sure to throw it out! – TJ Ellis Sep 4 '10 at 10:04
I once left some tofu in the fridge for two weeks, not knowing it would go bad, then ate it, and I really wondered why it tasted so bad. – delete Sep 4 '10 at 14:38
