Food Expiration Dates

Have you ever wondered how long after the expiration date should you eat something?  I know I'm guilty of eating some foods after the expiration date. Then there are the obvious ones that tell me to toss it out.

"Sell-By" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale. You should buy the product before the date expires.

 "Best if Used By (or Before)" date is recommended for best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date. 

 "Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. The date has been determined by the manufacturer of the product.

"Closed or coded dates" are packing numbers for use by the manufacturer.
