    Default Expired "Fiber One" bars ( Aug 21, 2010) and "Odwalla" original Superprotein bars (Dec 25, 2010)

    I have about 20 Expired "Fiber One" oatmeal and strawberry bars
    (expired on Aug 21, 2010) and 31"Odwalla" original Super protein bars
    (expired on Dec 25, 2010).

    Odwalla bars probably are safe for another 3-4 months but how soon
    should I finishing consuming the Fiber One bars? Or should I throw
    away the Fiber One bars? I know for a fact that if I give away on
    Craigslist, no one would tale them.

    Thanks for any suggestion.

    Fiber One is a fiber supplement in your nutrition bars, so the
    expiration date may simply show on what date the fiber loses it's
    effectiveness, from that date forward. My fiber capsules have an
    expiration date on the bottle.

    Tear open one of each, if they look decayed or smell rancid, toss 'em.

    Throw them away. If you eat them, you are at risk of developing ingrown
    toenails.

    What makes you think a homeless shelter would want/take expired
    food? You think they don't care what kind of food they serve?

    Expired food should be tossed.

    There is a huge difference between "USE by", and "best by"...

    Agreed! I had a friend who worked at a soup kitchen in Seattle. This was
    in the days when expiration dates were not required. But he said he knew
    some of the food was stale because he tasted it. He said bakeries would
    often drop off really old seasonal stuff. Like Valentines cookies months
    after Valentines day. He said he hated having to serve them the bad tasting
    stuff.

    Exactly...wrap a dollar bill around one and give one to the homeless
    person at the end of the exit ramp tonight. Bet they will take it.
    I doubt with all sincerity, they are going to look at the wrapper
    date.

    I rarely toss expired food unless it has obviously spoiled. Often that
    date is a Best By date; even a Use By date I've missed doesn't
    automatically get tossed out. Where's common sense?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to not use common sense with regard to tossing
    expired food. However, I don't think it is appropriate to donate
    obviously expired food to homeless shelters. "Hey, here's some expired
    food I won't eat, but you can have it".

    Dumpster diving is very different from donating obviously expired food
    to a shelter.

    Nope. Sorry. It's insulting to give expired food you won't eat to
    homeless people.

    Obviously not around here, I do the same thing. Being the nit picker I
    am I rotate food to the front of the shelf every time I shop. Now, if I
    could convince my loverly wife to do the same. Hah!

    Why? They're homeless and hungry, it's not like they're used to
    eating a ritzy dinner each evening. Besides, most of them choose to
    be homeless... I'd feed them at least as good as I feed the wild
    critters; expired bread and scraps. I used to buy all kinds of baked
    goods at the Entennman's outlet, half price for expired returns,
    perfectly good. The expired bread I buy at Walmart for half price to
    feed the deer is still good, I occasionally eat some. Insulting to
    feed poor people the same food I'd eat, yer nutz. Where do yoose
    think homeless shelters and soup kitchens obtain most of their food;
    it's expired food donated from stupidmarkets, restaurants, company
    cafeterias, etc... if they had to rely only on what private citizens
    donate they'd all starve to death. This morning I bought a half gallon
    container of Tropicana Ruby Red grapefruit juice at half price,
    perfectly good. There are plenty of people here who regularly boast
    about buying "used" meat.

    There is a difference between expired food I'd eat and expired food I
    wouldn't eat.

    I don't mean to not throw away perfectly good food just because of the
    sell by date or use by date. What I am trying to say is it is wrong to
    try to give away or donate food you _would not eat_ to a homeless
    shelter. It's fake altruism. If you want to donate to a shelter, at
    least give them something fresh. It's that simple.

    I just found a jar of something that had sneaked its way to the back
    of my highest kitchen shelf and taken up residence. It was shrimp
    paste. Had a use by date of early 2006. That is gone now.

    Usually, I am lenient with my expired foodstuffs, but something about
    this screamed "toss me, please," and I obliged.
