From what I've heard, some will be shipped frozen from the warehouse to the stores and then set out on the shelves, that's how they'll get the extra days. So I guess that the goal is to have the time from warehouse to shelf cutting into shelf life. From what I understand they will be printed with a date and then frozen, just long enough to get to the stores, not long term freezing.

Longer shelf life? Didn't they already have a shelf life of over 20 years?
