Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Food safety and eating past the expiration dates

Ever wonder about the expiration dates or sell by dates on what you buy?

Sometimes it’s stamped clearly. Other times, it’s in some esoteric code which means nothing to the consumer.

Slate.com has a really good article on the subject, you can read that here.

Previously, I wrote a similar blurb about food safety and food storage.

But really piqued my curiosity is when I went into Grocery Outlet and saw inexpensive food past their expiration date. That article proved to be a whole new education for me.
