Do you know that certain types of food products must be date marked with expiry dates?
However, the safety of a food product is not dependent on its expiry date. Food products that are not stored or handled properly can be unsafe to consume even if their expiry date has not passed.
Be sure to check food product for signs of spoilage (e.g. odour, bulging packaging, etc) before consumption. Don’t consume if there are any doubts about its safety.
