    The Truth About Food Expiration Dates


    [​IMG]

    We've all been there-standing in front of our refrigerator tossing food because the expiration dates have passed. That, according to new research, may be a big mistake that is leading to a lot of wasted food.
    According to a report from Natural Resources Defense Council and Harvard Law School's Food Law and Policy Clinic, many Americans are prematurely throwing out food because they are confused by what expiration dates actually mean. And it is adding up to a lot of waste. More than 90 percent of Americans, according to this research, throw out food too early, and 40 percent of the U.S. food supply is thrown out unused in large part because of confusion regarding food dating.

    Happy to see this thread, because I was talking to a friend around Thanksgiving, and they were concerned about some canned goods being bad because of the expiration date. I shared that that the expiration date was incorrect becuz the
    canned goods and most foods were still good after that date.

    Thanks for backing me up on that...even tho' you didn't know you were...LOL!!
