Watch expiration dates

According to the Chobani Yogurt and Dannon Yogurt websites, yoghurt can be eaten past the sell by or the expiration date on the containers as long as you don't see any mould growing on it or smell sourness that often comes with spoiled dairy products.

Bottom line

The Chobani Yogurt website says, "if the yoghurt looks, smells, and tastes good, and there are no visible signs of mould, it's most likely OK to eat." If the yoghurt passes the smell and the mould test it should be good to eat.
