Blumenthal: This devastates Barr's credibility - CNN Video
In the past, Blumenthal said, they might have opposed the idea, believing that confusion about expiration dates would cause consumers to buy more food, more frequently. But wait — are businesses really clamoring for more government regulations?
One recent proposal suggests going the other way — helping to ease confusion about date labeling, by doing away with many date labels altogether. In Europe, most packaged foods must have a date label, even if they never really expire. So the European Union is considering exempting certain nonperishable foods from the mandate.

In the meantime, you can take matters into your own hands and visit a site like EatByDate. Many food products are perfectly safe to use weeks, months or even years past their printed expiration date. The website says an unopened jar of salsa, for example, is fine to eat up to two months after the date on the label. An unopened jar of instant coffee can last as long as 20 years. And baking products such as salt, sugar and flour, along with a variety of products like dried fruit and beans, syrup, unpopped popcorn and boxed Jell-O mix, will last virtually forever — no matter what the date on the package says.
That leads to a lot of good food being trashed — and good money being wasted. And that kind of negates all the time, effort and money it takes to fill your pantry. Photo by Bernie Goldbach. Your email address will not be published. Your Website.
