    Default Expiration dates

    How closely do you pay attention to the expiry/best before dates on your food?

    I tend to stick to expiry dates closely on things like milk, but other things as long as they smell ok I'll let it slide.

    I do also, but if the milk is dated too close to the expiration date, I try to find milk that has a later date stammped on the jug.

    I always remain cautious about the expiry dates printed on the covers of the medicines and packed eatables. I don’t buy the products that show the expiry dates near by i.e. within 20-25 days. I never hesitate to throw away the products if they expire at my end, after the health of my family is more important.

    It is necessary also to do such things.

    I remain cautious of the expiration date. I prefer buying stuff that has latest manufacturing date. I am specially particular about the dairy products and bakery products. For spices i sometimes use them after expiry as well if they smell ok and are not infected.

    I tend to abide by the dates on milk but other things.. as long as it's not growing and tastes and smells ok I let it slide too.
    One of the cooks at work told me that the dates are for people who don't know the difference between an onion that is good and one that's on the turn and I have to agree!

    On my own opinion it is really necessary to check expiration date and the labels. For some reason that you may smell it nicely or good but you don't know what might happen next. You might get poisoned for doing so.
