Is It Safe to Consume Foods after Expiration Date?

Sardine in the cans

Surprisingly that no federal regulation to impose “product dating.” However, foods for infant are required to include “expire dating.”

The institution called as “Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS)” requests voluntarily to label of dating some products, including:
- meat
- poultry
- eggs

We may find the following phrases in the market:
- use by
- sell by
- best if used before


Food preserved in the bottle

Use by” phrase means “the last date recommended for the use of the product.” Thus, not a safety date.

Phrase of “sell by” is used by a store management to display the products for sale to consumers. It is not relate to quality or safety of products.


Traditional preserved tempeh

Best if use before,” this is not indicating to safety date. It is just the date of the best flavor.

So, if the “phrases” not refer to food safety, then, we may have a question: Is It Safe to Consume Foods after Expiration Date?

The answer is depend on several factors, generally:
- If flavor, odor and color changed, then, we should throw away the foods.
- if foods are preserved in bottles and cans, we may eat after six months of expired date.

We may consume little bit longer than expired date, if we keep our purchased foods (eggs, meat, chicken, milk, apple, strawberry and other fresh or preserved products) in the refrigerator and or freezer.

Did you ever consume expired date foods?

  15. I never consumed expired food, Evi. I think. Except that they were defeated and sold them the same with some change in the alert tag.

    Important your entry, friend. Be very careful you have to be. I value your information and warning a lot. They are things to always keep in mind.

    Hugs, Evi, one more time.

  18. Que tema!!! yo suelo comprar cosas que despues se vencen, y algunas las consumo porque me dan lastima. Hasta ahora sigo vivita y coleando pero me despierta la reflexion , para que las compre? y tambien pienso que tire la plata. Creo que tenemos que ser mas conscientes al comprar. Beso grande, te espero en el blog hay entrada nueva.

  19. I stick to my mum's saying! "if in doubt, throw it out!" it's better to be safe than sorry with the foods. I try to meal plan so we eat things well before the expiry date, or freeze things I know we won't eat before the date is near :)


    Hope that you have had a great weekend :)

  25. There are some food that I will consume even after expiry date but it all depends on the type of food. If it is dried foodstuff or frozen ones, then I think its okay. Before buying I will check the expiry date and nowadays I try not to stock up too much.

  32. Yeah I guess sometime I ate something beyond the expiration date

    ReplyDelete
  33. It is a very serious issue from the sanitary point of view. Years ago there was no such lack of control today, food used to be well labeled with expiration dates.
    As a consumer I never buy products that do not come with the expiration label, the preferred consumption labels are not useful.
    A hug and happy week!

  34. Another interesting post.
    I try to consume everything until the validity.

  40. The only thing I eate after the "best before" date is salad. The leaves that are no longer good to eat are reasy to see and throw away, the other ones may still be good for consuming when kept in a fridge. I was aware that the best before date expressed the fact that there were no alterations in taste or smell but it happened to me that I had and kept in fridge some dairy products and when I opened them while still in best before time when were gone bad and impossible to eat.

  46. Alguna vez me he encontrado con alguna lata, que se ha quedado olvidada en algún rincón del mueble de cocina y se ha pasado un año y ha ido directamente a la basura. Por lo general suelo comprar lo que voy a consumir durante la semana y siempre miro sobretodo en los yogures ycosas parecidas adquirir los que tienen la fecha más tardía.

  50. Uma publicação super interessante! Confesso que eu já tenho consumido produtos após a data de validade, quando verifico que os mesmos continuam em perfeitas condições... por serem também vendidos, com especial desconto, por já se encontrarem próximos da expiração da data de validade...
    Por cá, encontram-se muitos produtos assim nos supermercados, devidamente assinalados, e quem os compra tem essa noção... para os consumir rapidamente nos dias mais próximos...
    Aproveito para agradecer, a sua simpática visita no outro dia, em artandkits.blogspot.com
    Vou-me ausentar por algum tempo... mas quando voltar, virei espreitar sempre que puder, este espaço super interessante!
    Adorei este seu blog, Evi!
    Beijinhos! Até breve!

    However, I have a calendula lotion which is well past its expirartion date, and I still use it for minor skin erruption as it helps. I've ordered some new calendula tube as this is almost finished, so hope I won't need it anymore.
