This just came into the Guild mailbox:
“I make yogurt in a licensed creamery and we’ve been seeing huge (infinite?) shelf lives for our yogurt, upwards of four weeks in the fridge, with a tangier taste but nothing evil going on. We’re currently putting a 2-week expiration date on our yogurt that we sell in stores, but we are tempted to make this date longer or to change wording so that retailers feel comfortable letting stock hang around. I’m curious to see if anyone in the cheese guild has had any experience with this issue, as there apparently aren’t any state guidelines to which we can refer, and the MMDC doesn’t bring up shelf life, either.
Thanks very much for any help you can offer.”
