How long can Coffee Mate liquid creamer stay out of the refrigerator before it spoils?

Coffee-Mate is a brand of non-dairy creamer manufactured by Nestle in both liquid and powder forms. Nestle states that liquid Coffee-Mate should always be refrigerated. The only exception is the single-serve cups which do not require refrigeration. Once open, Coffee-Mate liquid creamer should be used either within 14 days after opening, or before the use-by date on the container, whichever is sooner.
