Interpreting Food Container Dates During Covid-19 “Stay at Home” Order

Published on: April 13, 2020
Hello Fellow Quaranteeners!
Confused about how long your food will actually last? You’re not alone!
Since we’re all avoiding going food shopping, and my mom keeps asking how long her hummus will last, this information can be VERY helpful! “Use By” on a food container does not mean “throw out by this date” It means, “this is when the product will taste the best”
More info on Food Product Dating:
“Sell by April 14” is a type of information you might find on a meat or poultry product.
Are dates required on food products?
Does it mean the product will be unsafe to use after that date?
Here is some background informationwhich answers these and other questions about product dating.
