Wendy investigates food expiry dates: Use By vs Best By

It’s been a confusing week on the food safety front.. first the police and health officials are raiding foreign owned shops and confiscating their rice, cool drinks and maize meal for being past their best before dates and therefore “dangerous” and a few days later the health minister is on TV telling the nation that there are different kinds of “expiry” dates and actually, shelf-stable foods are still safe to eat after their best-before dates. For a crash course on Use By dates versus Best Before versus Sell By - and why you should care, listen to Wendy and Darren on food date marks.
