If you believe you have to throw out food that is past its sell by date, you are not alone. About 90 percent of consumers say they have discarded food solely because the sell by date had passed, according to food industry polls, but chances are they wasted good food, money, and resources.

How food producers deceive consumers

According to Ted Labuza, a professor of food science and engineering at the University of Minnesota who has studied food for more than half a century, “just because it [food] reaches a certain date on the package is not a guarantee that the food is unsafe.” So what is the truth about sell by, use by, and best before dates on your groceries?

One big problem is that use of these dates on food is not standardized. According to Dana Gunders, a staff scientist with the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which co-authored a new report (“The Dating Game: How Confusing Food Data Labels Lead to Food Waste in America”) with Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic, explained that “phrases like ‘sell by,’ ‘use by,’ and ‘best before’ are poorly regulated, misinterpreted and leading to a false confidence in food safety.”

Same with prescription drugs. Mostly, the only ones not safe after expiration dates are the ones that have to be refridgerated. The rest of them, the 'best before' is merely 100% effectiveness guaranteed. Not that they'll kill you if you take them after.
