Default Is my soymilk going bad? I don't know how to tell.

I purchased several containers of vanilla soy milk from the store
about a month ago. It's the kind where it doesn't have to be
refrigerated until it's been opened. The expiration date is for
something like July 2004. The first two boxes were fine but this third
one smells like eggs. I think it smells like hard-boiled eggs, Im not
really sure though. It also doesn't taste like anything where the
first two tasted like vanilla soy milk. The container had been stored
in my dining room where the temperature is probably around 68 degrees
Fahrenheit. Is this milk going bad?

When in doubt, throw it out.

I'd write to the manufacturer and ask for a refund. After all it's in the
valid date... And it gives them the chance to check their production...

I'm more like "if in doubt, complain"

different and then like eggs have turned bad

Ok, now some three days later it smells and tastes fine. Very odd.

Once it is opened, it goes bad quickly.

In general, you want to eat only very fresh foood, regardless of the date.
