Q: have two cartons of rice milk, one of which I opened a month ago. The other I just bought, and there appears to be tiny flecks in it that dissolve when touched. Amazingly, they taste identical. The older one may be a little less sweet. I’ll discard the older one. I’m not sure what to do with the one I just opened? Its expiration date is July 2014.

How can you tell if Classic Plain “Organic” Rice Dream Rice Milk has gone bad or spoiled or is unsafe to drink? How long would it take for illness to occur assuming you consumed a questionable product like this?
