well our consultant told us about them, aparently there was a mix up with the suppliers, they are definitly not out of date (dec 08) and are the real deal. she did say they shouldnt be there and that they are only meant to be supplied to sw groups however buy them while you can because they wont be getting any more lol

isnt it illegal to sell out of date food?
 
#11
ah, ui know sometimes you see 'out of code' food, im presuming thats another way of saying 'out of date' its all so bloody technical. i always eat stuff 'out of date' or past the 'best before' date and ive never ever had food posioning

All dates have a window on them so they are usually still ok for a few days after. It's ok to eat stuff after the best before date as it's only the quality that is compromised but after the use by date is a bit dodgy as this will usually have started to go off. We managed perfectly well before dates on our food by judging for ourselves so I don't see why we can't do it now

Oh a post I can comment on.......(have a degree in food and nutrition)

Use by dates - these are applied to food products where there is a definate danger to life if eaten after the date. These are termed "high risk" foods and are cream cakes / meat etc.

Best before dates - are on "low risk" items like canned veg / dried pasta, which won't really cause you harm but the food won't taste so nice.

Every food manufacturer has to add an additional 15% of the total life onto a product (after UB / BB date) before it becomes microbiologically unsafe.

This is tricky to work out as a consumer wouldn't know the full life of a product, but I'd eat stuff a couple of days past it's UB date but never any longer!

Hope this helps... x
