8. Food Dates & Guidance
8.1. Best Before
8.1.1. Best Before End dates (referred as “BBE”) appear on a wide range of frozen, dried, tinned and other foods.
8.1.2. BBE dates are about quality, not safety.
8.1.3. When the BBE date is passed, it does not mean that the food will be harmful, but it may begin to lose its flavour and texture.
8.2. Use By
8.2.1. You will see "Use By" dates on food that goes off quickly, such as smoked fish, meat products and ready-prepared salads.
8.2.2. Don't use any food or drink after the end of the "Use By" date on the label, even if it looks and smells fine. This is because using it after this date could put your health at risk.
8.2.3. For the "Use By" date to be a valid guide, you must follow storage instructions such as "keep in a refrigerator". If you don't follow these instructions, the food will spoil more quickly and you may risk food poisoning.
8.2.4. Once a food with a "Use By" date has been opened, you also need to follow any instructions such as "eat within 3-days of opening".
8.2.5. If the "Use By" is tomorrow, then you must use the food by the end of tomorrow, even if the label says, "eat within a week of opening" and you have only opened the food today.
8.2.6. If a food can be frozen, its life can be extended beyond the "Use By" date. But make sure you follow any instructions on the pack, such as "cook from frozen" or "defrost thoroughly before use and use within 24 hours".
