Housecall for Health: Food Labels
It’s likely happened to you before. You go in the fridge, reach for some food but oh no! It’s past the expiration date. Well, according to some new research — that date on the label might not be the best way to judge your food.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports:
A new Harvard study suggests sell-by and best-before dates on food labels aren’t accurate. The research finds dates printed on packaged foods to help retailers cycle through stocked products are inconsistent and contribute to the billions of pounds of food thrown out every year in the U.S. Health officials are pushing for a federal food dating system and say just because a food label reads past due, doesn’t mean it’s unsafe.
