How long after eating bad yogurt do you get sick?

Some bacteria that cause food-borne illness do not have off-flavors associated with them." Keeping track of the amount of time that yogurt's been in your fridge is the best way to avoid eating yogurt that's gone bad. If it's two weeks after the sell-by date, you should probably toss that container.

Similarly, you may ask, what should I do if I ate bad yogurt?

If the yogurt smells sour, it is probably no good. If the yogurt appears to be curdling at the bottom, it is going bad, and when the live bacterial cultures in yogurt die off, mold will form. Never eat moldy yogurt. Do not throw away your yummy yogurt (or your money), just because the sell by date has passed.

Subsequently, question is, how can you tell if yogurt is spoiled? Look for a larger-than-normal amount of liquid on the surface (don't worry, Greek yogurt is especially prone to some, but if there's more than usual that's a warning sign), a curdling texture near the bottom, and any sign of mold. These indicate the entire product has probably gone bad, say the folks at StillTasty.

In this regard, can you get food poisoning from a yogurt?

Dairy foods such as cheese, ice cream, and yogurt can upset the stomach after food poisoning. So, people may want to avoid them in favor of hydrating beverages and less-irritating foods.

Is it safe to eat expired yogurt?

According to Eat By Date, a site that outlines the actual shelf life of our favorite foods, as long as it's within one to two weeks of the expiration date, yogurt is still safe to consume. (Think about it: Yogurt is essentially spoiled milk in the first place; an extra week or two is not going to hurt.)
