  • Food Safety: To toss or not to toss

     Many of us are familiar with the “sell-by,” “best if used by” and “use-by” dates that appear on food products. These dates are expiration dates that provide information on the quality of products purchased. Knowing what these dates mean help consumers make better decisions on product quality, what to keep, what to toss and when.
