Thanksgiving Food Drives: Feed the Multitudes (Unless It's Illegal)
#34
Food "expiration dates" are arbitrary.  The food industry, as well as cosmetics, and others like them, use a 3-month, 6-month, 18-month, and 24-month "use by" and "sell by" dates.  The products don't go bad, right after these dates, but most people believe that they do.  The manufacturers only put those dates on there, to guarantee the freshness of their product.

The only product that I've seen where this date is even close to being right, is milk.
