When the expiration date has passed on food or dairy products when it's still on the shelves of a supermarket, it should be considered to be unsafe for eating or drinking. In some cases a food label will say. "best to eat after the food opened 10 days or less " for example, this is an item purchased before its expiration date. Once it's opened the above notice on the label should be followed.

Possibly, but it is not worth the risk. Cheese tends to develop mold after it reaches the expiration date, and the mold is not always easily visible.
