A: The food has gone bad. We should order takeout.

B: That’s a good idea.

- Is there an alternative to say instead of “the food has gone bad” in this case?

Thanks very much!

The food has {spoiled / gone off / deteriorated / started to decay}

The food is {off / past its best / no longer edible / going rotten / rank}

The food smells {off / bad / rank / foul}

This food has joined the dark side, Luke Skywalker -- consume it at your peril.

I like the phrase "gone south" - said especially of food that's been in the fridge long enough to turn into a science experiment.
