Do you toss out food items because they’ve met or are slightly past their expiration date? You might want to consider saving them before throwing them in the trash. The date is really a “use by” or “best by” date, which indicates the date when the food item may begin degrading in quality. It doesn’t mean the food is unhealthy or inedible. Go with your gut instinct and give the food a smell or taste test. And if you find food on its expiration date, consider using the item right away, before eating anything else.
