Sell by... Use by... Packed on... Best before... Still safe?

 

Straight Talk About Dates

 
According to the USDA food safety and inspection service ”foods kept constantly frozen at 0*F or lower will keep safe indefinitely”. According to Harvard Law School's Food and Policy Clinic” misleading expiration dates that have nothing to do with food and safety” are the leading reasons why “90 percent of Americans toss good food into the garbage because they mistakenly think that ”sell-by,” “best before,” “use-by” or “packed-on” on food containers indicate safety.
The truth is, there is not a uniform or universally accepted system used for food dating in the United States, product dating is not required by federal regulations and some states do not require any date codes at all. So why do the food processors and manufacturers do it & why so many different terms?
Americans throw out as much as 40 percent of the country's food supply each year at an unnecessary cost of up to $165 billion.
Good Earth Meat & Seafood simply gives you the opportunity to save the billions the American people squander on food each year. Be kind to our planet. We must raise awareness and work harder to toss far less perfectly food away.
We only ask this: Don't take our word for it. Research and then make up your own mind. Together we can save $165 billion a year and spend it on other things to make our world a better place. We realize not everyone thinks alike. So, of course, we carry a full line of food products with no such issues and are happy to provide them for you. But, assuming this is the first time this idea has been presented to you.
