expiry date of formula Rss

Hi,
Can you tell me please why formula can no longer be used one month from when it is opened.... what harm does it cause if you forget and use it past this date?

Tam, Qld

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. Formula is modified cow’s milk in a powdered form. It is quite susceptible to moisture and bacteria the longer that it is left open. The companies use the time period of one month to ensure that no potential problems occur with their formula. If you forgot for a few days there probably was no harm done but it is best to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Best wishes,
Alex.
