Expired or Best Before??

on Mar 22, 2016 @ 11:53 am

I know there is a difference between expired and best before dates but do you think stores should be allowed to sell products that have surpassed both those dates? Many stores do....I have learned after a few bad experiences to be very cautious of sale and clearance items, always look for the date! Personally I don't think they should you never know if it could be potentially harmful to your health!

Agree. Expired means expired and should be pulled off the shelves.

I know yogurt is good for 2 weeks after the expiry. I agree they shouldn't sell close to the actual date.

Stores shouldn't be allowed to sell stuff that is overdue. I once bought soy milk and realized it was 2 weeks old and when I tried returning it the cashier gave me a hard time and said lots of people still buy it when it is overdue. I said well I'm not one of those people! Gross.

That's gross. And has to be against some kind of regulation.

expired?? on Mar 22, 2016 @ 05:08 pm

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Chapman's sundae. It tasted funny and my son said it was off. We checked the date and it expired on Nov 15/2015 Next day I took it back and got a refund and was told "it should have been ok" Not nice.

I'm weird about it, but that's sort of the problem. Use by is important. Best before is a general guideline and many products are fine long after.

But stores should make it extremely clear when it's past and it should be highly discounted.

I stay away from the nearly expired stuff unless I will be consuming it the next day. I have been burned before. I felt really sick from carrots... only a couple days after the best before day. They didn't even taste funky but my body sure hated me for that.
