No, there's not. I've had milk turn before the date and well after.

If vitamins are stored well (eg., in the fridge) they are often potent and good beyond their "expiry date."

Same with pharma meds.

Expiry dates are a part of the Bu$$$$$ine$$$$.

Why not, if it looks and smells OK? Is it good to drink at 11:59PM on the expiration date, but not at 12:01AM the next day?

Expired vitamins do not go bad like food does and they do not turn into poison or toxins. Many expiration dates are set very conservatively because it benefits the supplement company. It is not dangerous to take expired vitamins, but as mentioned, the vitamins will lose their potency.
