You’re about to see a big change to the sell-by dates on food

Pretty much ignored the "use by" dates on most food because it seemed like it was only there to get people to throw away good food so they have to buy more...

Quote:
The majority of Americans have no clear idea what “sell by” labels are trying to tell them. But after 40 years of letting us guess, the grocery industry has made moves to clear up the confusion.

On Wednesday, the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the two largest trade groups for the grocery industry, announced that they’ve adopted standardized, voluntary regulations to clear up what product date labels mean. Where manufacturers now use any of 10 separate label phrases, ranging from “expires on” to “better if used by,” they’ll now be encouraged to use only two: “Use By” and “Best if Used By.”

So we might not see any change? They are being "encouraged" to do so. Not being forced.

I am always amazed that anyone pays any attention to these labels.

I just polished off a bag of beef jerky that said "Sell by 2016". Bought it in Florida 6years ago I think and just found it in my camping stuff.

Always gonna sniff it, anyway.

Those dates on stuff like salad dressing are pretty important. Anything with a strong aroma on it's own, really. Almost had some 3 year old dressing at Grandma's once.

You trust the chemicals to kill bad stuff ? Even with healthier food with less additives ?

Would you eat the 3 year old dressing ?

What’s with the date?

Let me take you back, back in time, back to January 1966.
The place; Camp Geiger, North Carolina. This is the East coast
U.S.M.C. Advanced Infantry Training center, where all Marines
regardless of their assigned MOS (Military Occupational Specialty),
receive the training to be a MOS 0311 (Combat Rifleman).

As a part of the training we went into the field for a period of
time and were given combat rations (aka K-Ration or C-Ration).
These came in tan cardstock boxes (about the color of a grocery
bag and composition of a cereal box). The box would have black
printed labeling as to what the meal inside was...

There were 3 basic meal types,[B]reakfast, [D]iner (lunch), [S]upper.

most of the food contents were in tins, often OD (Olive Drab)
in color with black printed labeling.

example of contents...

Package of Biscuits
Package of Graham Crackers
Package of Sugar Tablets
Meat Can of Ham (Breakfast), Chicken (Dinner), Turkey (Supper)
Fruit Bar (Breakfast), Caramels (Dinner), Chocolate Bar (Supper)
Powdered Coffee (Breakfast), Bouillon (Dinner), Lemon (Supper)
Piece Chewing Gum
4-Pack Cigarettes
Package of Toilet Tissue
Wooden Spoon
Matches

About 1 in 6 ration packs contained a P-38 can opener.


The dates on the cans and boxes were 1945

Fun times... eating food 21 years old.

Now they get MRE's (Meal Ready to Eat ~ freeze dried stuff).

Sea going bellhop,
Gyrene,
Jarhead,
Grunt,
Leatherneck,
Devil Dog,
Teufelhunden,
Sea Soldier,
Iron Mike,
Sir,

but don't ever just use the term soldier!

There's a scene near the end of the 1963 movie Charade where
Cary Grant takes Audrey Hepburn to the U.S. Embassy in Paris to turn
in the stamps, she addresses the Marine on Duty...

"Soldier, where would I find Mr. Cruikshank?"

The Guard replies...

"Marine Ma'am," and then tells her where Cruikshank's office is located.

More than once I've eaten stuff out of the pantry or freezer older than that.

Unopened ketchup lost behind a box of nasty cereal in the pantry - sure.

Half empty Thousand Island, 3 years expired - no way

Yeah, I eat canned goods years past their expiration date but wouldn't touch that. That's food poisoning waiting to happen.

MRE's are freeze dried?

They arent horrible, but they arent that good either! The kids always want to try them and they take a bite or two and say...'hey, these arent so bad' but then after 3-4 bites they start to hate it!

Had good times selling the candy, mm's, skittles etc to idiot privates who couldnt go without their candy for $10 a pop! Fools!


Worst I ever had was cornbread stuffing. Was H O R R I B L E! Never had the omelette's but they were the only thing the DS's would allow you to turn back/trade it.
