The expiration date on the package means that the medication must not be sold or dispensed after that date. Drug companies must set the expiration date far in advance of when the product's effectiveness might begin to deteriorate, taking into consideration the length of time it will take the buyer to use the product after it is purchased.
It depends on how long after the expiration date they are used. While you will not get sick from it, i.e. it's not toxic, it may have lost its active properties with time. I personally, as well as many others I know personally, take medications past the expiration date with no adverse reactions. Again, really the only thing that can happen is that it may not be as powerful as it was if a long…
That date is a "Freshest By Date". Soda does not expire. You can drink a soda that is several years old-- I have. Not good, but wont hurt you.

Even food in perfectly-sealed…

If you have no other option but to use slightly-expired medications - - DO NOT - - exceed the stated dose in order to compensate for a loss…
If you are talking about shelf stable canned crab meat, the date on the can is likely the 'best by' date and not an expiration. If the can is unopened, has been stored properly and is not swollen or damaged, it is likely safe to eat, but the palatability of the crab meat will deteriorate over time. The processor will not guarantee the product beyond the recommended 'use by' date.
The expiration date given on batteries is to limit duration of liability/ responsibility to manufacturer. Most of the sealed and properly stored batteries will be good enough to use few months after expiration but not after few years. At the same time it is risky to use old batteries as they tend to leak spoiling expensive equipments.
