    Default Expiration dates - more

    According to this well-cited Wiki article
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_safety
    "expiration" dates are not required in the United States, except for infant
    food.

    "With the exception of infant formula and baby foods which must be withdrawn
    by their expiration date, Federal law does not require expiration dates. For
    all other foods, except dairy products in some states, freshness dating is
    strictly voluntary on the part of manufacturers. In response to consumer
    demand, perishable foods are typically labeled with a Sell by date.It is up
    to the consumer to decide how long after the Sell by date a package is
    usable. Other common dating statements are Best if used by, Use-by date,
    Expiration date, Guaranteed fresh <date>, and Pack date."

    In contrast it says the UK has laws governing the use of these labeling
    terms.

    That one didn't wrap. I wonder why sometimes they do and sometimes
    they don't?
