My Pillsubury Grand canned (refrigerated) biscuits have an expiration date of August 27th. Is it safe to fix them for dinner tonight? I am wondering if the freshness date is more about the leavening ingredients than food safety but not sure.

it's likely fine. Open it up. Really, i think the bigger question would be if the leavening agents in it still work okay.

There are probably enough preservatives to last 4000 years, I would eat them...

I did this last week- had no other bread in the house- so i tried it- the can still popped did not smell any different and they rose as normal - we all ate them with no ill effects!

I say fine.

I had some that was beyond and when I opened them, it was obvious they were bad. I would pop them and see.

I'm sure they are fine

A month is nothing. We have eaten way past a month. They will be fine.

Ha....I just dealt with this last night. Made Chicken Ala King and went to cook up the biscuits and noticed they were past their date (mine were more than month). I opened them and they popped like normal but seemed a bit "crumbly" is the best way I can describe it. I pulled them apart and baked them and they seemed to bake up OK. Tasted one and YUCK they had a sour taste to them. Threw them out....toasted some bread and served my Chicken Ala King over toast points instead.

I used some last week that "expired" in July. I think they rose more than they were supposed to, but otherwise they were fine.
Anything like that, as long as it looks okay, smells okay, and tastes okay ... I will use it without a second thought.

Well we just had the biscuits with dinner and they were perfectly normal. I didn't notice a single thing different about them from more fresh ones. Sometimes I think those freshness dates are so we will throw out items and just buy more. I noticed the "freshness" date on chips is much shorter than it used to be (only maybe 2 months). I can keep a bag in our pantry for well over 6 to 10 months even and it taste just fine as long as it was airtight sealed to begin with.
