Is this food that was recalled or do you mean the food just expired two weeks ago? If it just expired, it probably shouldn't cause a problem. If the dog isn't vomiting or has any other symptoms, he is probably fine.
I would get fresh food right away, though and get rid of the older food.

Does your pup seem fine otherwise? I had a beagle that found and ate a very old leathery squirrel. She swallowed it whole as she ran from us, I thought for sure it would have at least made her ill, but nothing, she was fine, crazy what they are able to eat.

Expiration dates are guidelines not the bible. If your dog is fine that's great. Dump the food if your worried. After two weeks I wouldn't be worried.

I have been using cold medicine that expired in 2005. Oops! I didn't die, but I did throw it away. ;)

The date on your dog food is probably a "sell by" date, so it doesn't mean the food is no good.

...and expiration dates are usually to guarantee freshness, not that it goes bad and inedible like milk.

A retailer told me kibble expiration dates are sell by dates not finish by. I have often bought kibble close to or even a little past the bag expiration date for 20 to 60% off the regular price, and have never had a problem feeding it. It is laughable to get worried over something with an April 30 date. Your mom probably knew exactly what she was doing.
