I always make my own decisions as to whether or not food is fit to eat, the sell by date means very little. According to this article, choosing which moulds are safe and which are not is is a bit of a minefield.

Having once had a very painful and uncomfortable week with food poisoning which I blamed on Chicken from a chip shop i would always err on the side of caution. I have never since had Chicken from a chip shop in the summer.

I suspect an awful lot of food we have been eating for years is junk food.
At the prices McDonalds charges I don't think it is realistic to expect very much. The old adage that you get what you pay for has never been so true. And "better than they were" shows how bad they must have been.

This thread was about good food going off at home. At what point do you chuck it away as opposed to chucking it up?
