Tip Of The Day-Product Dates

Are you as confused as I am by what the dates on certain products mean?  Well here’s a tip we picked up in Prevention Magazine. Dates Translate as follows:

Sell by:   The date retailers should sell or remove the product from the shelf.  Typically, this indicates when a product is two-thirds of the way through its shelf life, so there’s still plenty of time for you to use it.

Best By:   The date at which quality starts declining, although the food might still be safe to eat.

Use By:   The date when the product quality begins decreasing and a rapid pace and safety could be a concern.  In other words, do not eat beyond this point.
