Use-by dates on food could be useless

The pharmaceutical companies also have it all their own way because they think they can control us with an expensive pill. But, there are other methods of healing the body. So, this forum is for health issues and promoting healthy living.

Use-by dates on food could be useless

Use-by dates on food could be useless

There is a campaign to take use-by dates on milk in order to save 100 million pints each year.
They say that people are throwing away good food and drink.
Instead of a use-by date on milk they say the 'sniff test' would be far better.
This should also apply to all food.
I eat loads of food that has past its sell by and use by date and can confirm it's never done me any harm.

Let's face it, who throws away good food?
You know when food or milk goes off.
Mind you, has anyone made a cup of tea or coffee with milk that is off :lol:
You get the floaters and then you need to make the tea again, so sniff it first otherwise the 'savings' are not worth it.
There is another tea bag or spoonful of coffee not forgetting the energy used to boil the water.
I don't throw away good food and never have done.

I once ate some cheese from the fridge that was there so long it was rock hard.
I like crunchy stuff but crunchy chess was a bit bad.

Out of date food is ok sometimes. The date is just a guideline really.
