"Does this smell off to you?"

According to The Scotsman:

A RURAL medical practice in Scotland is at the centre of a vaccination alert following the discovery that potentially life-saving drugs may have been stored at the wrong temperature for up to nine months.
A total of 260 patients - including 98 babies and children - are being offered booster jabs for a range of diseases including polio, tetanus, diphtheria, and hepatitis A and B after the problems with the vaccine storage fridge were discovered during an external audit inspection by NHS Grampian.

It is thought that the entire reserve of vaccination drugs will need to be thrown out along with a diet yoghurt now a week  past its use by date, half a litre of semi-skimmed which smells OK but better to be on the safe side and a packet of bacon, still sealed, but is it meant to be that colour?
