    Geesh who obsesses about expiration dates?
    My food doesn't seem to know how to read a calendar. A jar of mayo four
    months past a sell by date would be used with nary a blink.

    Expiry dates are the way I figure what to donate to the food bank ;-)

    I took back a case of tomato sauce because it was a month past the
    expiration date and the food bank wouldn't take it. We used it for
    spaghetti sauce and other cooked meals, no problem.

    I'll bet is does not say "Expiration date" I'll bet it says "Best if used
    by"

    It's not expired.

    At my FB, sorters and packers are instructed to pitch things past the exp
    date. So please check with yours first and possibly save them the
    volunteer labor.

    My jar of Hellmans mayo says "Best if used by", there is NO expiration
    date. People who are slobs and contaminate the product probably cut
    the useable period down to one week or one tuna salad, whichever
    occurs first.

    Use-by dates are a great way to find reduced-price maturing cheeses on
    the shelf at a time when they are approaching their best ripeness.

    I hope the Aussie rules on that never change; I love buying aged
    camemberts, bries, blue veins and similar cheeses at half-price or
    better because they have to throw them out if they don't sell by
    use-by date.

    However, I'm not aware of any mayos that improve with age.

    Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

    We have local singles groups that do volunteer work to do that sort of
    thing. I think it could kill romance to save the volunteer work.

    NOW you tell me. I've been getting up at midnight and checking all
    foodstuffs for expiration dates. I toss what expired that day.

    But...but... canned goods don't expire. And a month past for canned goods
    is still perfectly usable. For somebody who doesn't have anything else.

    My wife and mother-in-law have a saying: "It's been in the refrigerator."

    Intimating in some way that the refrigerator is in some way like a pyramid,
    protecting things for an eternity. I, on the other hand, consider it a
    combination of many things. How long from when the item was purchased until
    it was first opened? Was it kept in a pantry or a refrigerator? How many
    times was it allowed to sit out and reach room temperature? How much stray
    food was allowed into the food, as in the case of mayonnaise and chicken
    salad, egg salad, and just pieces of foods that may be contaminants. It's
    all an equation.

    I have to admit that I have found out that foods will stay "good" longer
    than their expiration dates, but with me, I'd just as soon toss it if
    there's not much left, and to plan usage so that it doesn't reach that age.
    If one is keeping it around that long, they aren't using that much, and that
    needs to be evaluated. Some foods change color, and I don't think that
    green hot sauce is good once it turns brown.

    I have actually gone into the fridge and found items FOUR years out of date,
    but then there's that "It's been in the refrigerator" clause.

    I have worn out my welcome, making my point repeatedly when anyone asks
    about the safety of an out of date food when I just reply, "It's been in the
    refrigerator."

    And I LOVE the phrase, "I wonder if this is spoiled. Here, YOU taste it."

    Ayup, like that's gonna happen.

    Now, that doesn't mean that I will consume any out of date food, or use it
    in my recipes. What it does mean is that it will disappear the first time
    no one is looking.

    If you're having foods approaching their expiration dates, you need to
    reevaluate how much you use, and adjust accordingly. A trip to the ER can
    be thou$and$.

    Now, that is the answer unlike idiotic Gumbo's and Sqwertz's.

    Mine comes with a slit in the cap and so I never digged in with a
    spoon. It was always immediately put back in the refrigerator.

    I was using it only when I am in a rush in the morning and get a
    sandwich ready for lunch box. Today, I was home but didn't want to
    stop writing my report for too long and so the sandwich for lunch

    Like Parmesan cheese powder? I don't buy the bottle anymore after I
    found out that at Winco's, you can just get it per oz.

    Salsa verde and jalapeno in bottle (I use it for pizza) have very long
    expiration dates.

    Thanks. Mayonnaise was bought for emergency use in making quick
    sandwich. I'll replace it the next time I go grocery shopping.

    My wife used to be an expert on canned foods, and when they were no
    longer good. There was a whole vocabulary. She was a food chemist for
    the government for seven years. It depended on the construction of the
    cans and what was in them.

    Or at least that was what she told you so she could throw them out or
    keep them - as she wished. Clever woman! My hat is off to her.

    Hmph. I watched a wedge of 18 dollar a pound Romano at my local packy
    for months, but it didn't make it to the exp date. I guess someone
    else was watching it too and beat me to the punch.
