How Many Of These Expired Foods Are You Eating?

What does "expired" mean to you?

Posted on

Before answering the following questions, it's important to note the FDA's stance on food product dating. The following is from their website:

"Manufacturers provide dating to help consumers and retailers decide when food is of best quality. Except for infant formula, dates are not an indicator of the product’s safety and are not required by Federal law."

The dates indicate quality and freshness, leaving it up to the consumer to decide if the food is good enough to eat.

So then, the choice is yours...
