I recently bought a wedge of blue cheese; the expiration date on it was 5 weeks out. The look, feel, and smell of the outside was normal but when I started to crumble it, the blue veins inside were "fuzzy". I've eaten my fair share of blue cheese but this is a first. I threw it away, just to be safe. Did I throw money down the drain?
