Where can you get expiration codes for best choice food products?
OK Here is the scoop! You just caused harmful illness to A patient. I WAS HELPING a handicapped lady - unable to reach under cabinets She accepts free foods from others.... I noticed some cans were WELL MARKED FOR HER TO SEE the expiration dates and we threw those out from 1994! Food is tooo expensive to throw out...but DEADLY to special stomach patients to EAT! PLEASE GO BEFORE THE BOARD OF BEST CHOICE AND FIX THIS PROBLEM FOR THE UNDER PRIVIAGED. NO WONDER OUR EMERGENCY ROOMS ARE FULL OF STOMACH PROBLEMS - NOT THE FLU ? JUST TAINTED FOOD. OUR HOSPITAL WILL BE INFORMED IMMEDIATELY. Older people can't read in "CODE" THEY DO NOT HAVE COMPUTERS TO REGISTER OR FIND A EXPIRATION CODE THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE WORLD!!!! I've just notifed our Governor of such a huge problem...overlooked. Thanks for helping Nurse in Oklahoma 1. Please put a expiration date READABLE to patients
09/May/07 is May 9th, 2007. On perishable goods you will see 'best before' either 09/MA/07 or MA/09/07. This does not mean the products isn't good to eat for another couple of days, but just that it tastes it best up to the date given. You should NEVER eat anything more than two dates after the expiration date. These dates can be found on the lid of the products or on the side of the package.
When the expiration date has passed on food or dairy products when it's still on the shelves of a supermarket, it should be considered to be unsafe for eating or drinking. In some cases a food label will say. "best to eat after the food opened 10 days or less " for example, this is an item purchased before its expiration date. Once it's opened the above notice on the label should be followed.
That depends how long after the expiration, how it has been stored and the condition of the can. Usually, canned food has a "best by", not an "expiration". If the "expiration" is recent and the can has been stored properly and is in good condition, the contents could be safe. Whether or not to use it would be your decision.
The best choice you should always make is to back-up your codes into a "Codelist", just incase something happens. You can always go to the code manager and do a "Quick Update" to put default codes that are on Codejunkies onto your Action Replay.

Depends on the form of the medicine and also of the substance. Many medicines keep part of their pharmacological properties during a certain period of time after expiration date, but as none can tell for sure how long the medicine is still effective, the best choice is to purchase a new one. Psychological effects can make the medicine not effective if you don't trust it. (Jim west70)
