Its a Reference Date, not "will Spoil By date"
In fact, for the majority of foods, these dates are set as guidelines for the store itself and are often there just to provide a reference for the customer.
Even though the ”sell by date” is important and should be checked on all food purchases, there is still some room for you to take advantage of those sale items that have dates that expire soon.
And, some foods are not labeled with “sell by dates” at all. But there are some standards you can follow with these foods to assure you are still managing your older foods properly.
