Yes, it is safe.
It is important to highlight that there is a difference between the “use-by date” and “best-before date” labels.
Foods labeled with “best-before date” are not harmful to eat once they have passed their “best-before date”, though their quality (i.e. taste) decreases over time.
Foods marked with “use-by date” can be risky to eat after they have passed their “use-by date” (e.g. fresh shellfish, fresh meat, etc.). It is important to store these foods appropriately (refrigerator set at 5 degrees Celsius or below). Remember to use all your different senses to evaluate the condition of the product in question.
