If a bag of mixed lettuce is 2 days past the use by date would you still eat it?

It smells and tastes fine and still seems fresh and crisp.

A use by date is set at an earlier date so the product won't make you sick. Take it as a guide. I've eaten cream that was un opened 2 weeks past the used by date. It was fine.

 Man that’s a gamble eating cream past it’s use by!

 Cream would be fine 2 days passed, I don’t know I was about 2weeks

 My parents use cream, milk and yoghurt passed the use by date all the time. If it hasn't been opened it keeps for quite a while.
