    go off

    hi everyone,
    I just looked up the word "go off" meaning not good to eat or drink because too old, is there any American phrasal verb for it?

    thank you in advance

    Re: go off

    Definition and pronunciation of go | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary
    (British English) if food or drink goes off, it becomes bad and not fit to eat or drink


    Do Americans say "go bad," though it's not a phrasal verb?

    I might say something had "gone bad."

    Thank you sunsunmoon and SoothingDave,
    I guess there isn't any phrasal verb for that.
