What’s The Difference Between ‘Sell By’, ‘Best By’, and Expiration Dates?

Shopping at the grocery store means keeping track of a whole lot of dates.  So it’s important to know the difference between ‘sell by’, ‘best by’, and expiration dates.

Here’s how it breaks down:

    • Sell-By Date: after this date, products should no longer be sold, but are still safe to eat.
    • ‘Best By’ or ‘Use By’ Date: Food beyond this date is likely safe to eat, but the quality may suffer.  Mostly found with canned or dry goods.
    • Expiration Date: Food beyond this date is not considered safe to eat and should be thrown out.
