PEGGY: How long after opening is it safe to consume (reduced-fat) cream cheese? —J.F., Erie,
According to Philadelphia Cream Cheese, under normal refrigerator conditions of 40° at all times, an
unopened package of cream cheese is good 1 month past the "Best When Purchased By" date on the carton.
Once opened, cream cheese should be used within 10 days.
Indulgence no longer has to feel guilty. Go ahead, treat yourself!
