We’ve been getting a lot of questions specific to a prepared food in your fridge. Such as – “I made this special dish last week, can I still eat it?”. We really have no way to answer such questions because we don’t know what you put into that dish (a single ingredient can degrade an entire dish if it is an ingredient with a short shelf life), how you packaged your dish (a airtight seal can make a huge difference), and how cold you keep your appliances (a few degrees higher or lower can affect your food). Besides all of this, individual results will vary slightly because of: the climate in which you live, what stores you shop at, what the store policies are as far as sell-by dates, how far away you live from the store, how long you waited to put the groceries away when you got home, if you left them in the car, etc., etc… you get the idea.
So, what we are telling you is that if you follow all of the recommendations on our web page for that food, then your food should last for the length of time indicated on the green tables and if you’re extra careful you may even find that it lasts longer!
Please check back often as we will be constantly adding new products to the main content pages. We hope you will continue to find Eat By Date useful. We appreciate all of your comments and suggestions. If you’re curious about a food we’re missing, just let us know!
