    Its lousy before the expiration date. The only way to make a tasty dish with that sauce is to make it from scratch with very fresh sweet butter, cream and white cheese like NY White cheddar or provolone. Chef Alfredo even tasted the cream and butter to make sure they were fresh before making Fettuccine Alfredo which he then turned with a golden fork.

    Twist off the top. If no 'POP' toss it out. Or just make fresh. It only takes 4 ingredients.

    If the seal on the jar has not been broken, and the lid hasn't 'blown' [risen up].

    find a simple recipe and learn to make it yourself. It is sooooo easy.I wouldn't trust a sauce that has expired.

    For the love of Bob, that is NOT an expiration date.   It has NOTHING to do with food safety.

    That is the date by which the manufacturer GUARANTEES TOP QUALITY TASTE AND TEXTURE.

    It is not an expiration date  it is a best-by or use by - but it is not some magical date that after which the sauce turns to mud. It just means if you are not happy with the contents the company will not consider any kind of compensations.  Worst case - the flavor or color starts to go off - but not dangerous. You will know dangerous when you smell it.

    Because it's dairy-based, I wouldn't risk it past the expiration date.

    As long as the vacuum seal is still good, or if it has been refrigerated.
