Few days ago I did some spring cleaning in the kitchen cabinets. I found quite a number of grocery items that were way past their expiry dates. Without any hesitation, I tossed out those items into the garbage bins. When my hubby found out about it, he said that I shouldn't do that. He said that the expiry date is just a precaution measure taken by manufactures to ensure the freshness of the items. BUT I'm not so convinced. I have my own justifications on my action. First of all, I really want to make sure that no one will fall sick eating the expired food. Second, when I checked the expiry dates, most of them have been expired for more than six months or some even more than 2 years!. Third, I don't want to take any unwanted risk even though I've read from some articles saying that expired food is still okay. I might be too conscious about this BUT it's better to be safe than sorry. RIGHT?
Now, my questions to those who are reading this entry:
1. Would you still keep expired food?
2. Would you consume or use expired food or items?
3. How long would you keep expired food or item?
4. Have you ever consumed any expired food before? Did something happen to you?
