What would be an oops? I don't see where anyone claimed there were.

"What would be an oops? I don't see where anyone claimed there were."

people have claimed there are none, but in fact there are some.
look it up.
research it.
follow not the herd, for they choose the Cliff Option.

I don't see where anyone is challenging this. If you are so concerned, how about guiding to the correct answer instead of calling us names. Give us your cites so we can compare/SHARE our knowledge.

While there are no federal laws that require food dating, there are laws that dictate how dating must be done if a manufacturer decides to use dating or if a state requires it.

I concede that I'm a little over the top on this.

I had an unpleasant experience a long time ago. I made a sandwich. The bread looked ok at first glance. I didn't examine it or smell it. I took a bite and something tasted strange. I looked at the sandwich again and smelled the meat at the top - ok - rotated it around in my hands as I examined it- , good, good, what the!!?? - and the whole bottom of the crust was white & green mold. Seeing it turned my stomach and I immediately wretched the food out of my mouth. Ever since then I have had issues and check dates, smell, and examine everything.

Of course, I was speaking in hyperbole when I used the word "paranoia." I've been known to use milk a couple of days past the date if it smells okay.

PF -

read the thread and see who is agreeing / disagreeing with actual facts.

challenging is your word, not mine.

21 CFR and lottsa' subparts cover it.

why not just share? because I've done that for decades without effect.

it's the gift-a-fish vs. teach fishing debate. there are people on these forums who should - after decades - know better. but they don't because they've never made the effort to learn. read, dismiss, let's go with the standard 128 character Tweet.

so I've changed tactics. make 'em look it up 'emselfs.

I bake a lot of bread. it does not come out of the oven with a eat-or-die-by date. it does get mold if it survives long enough.

'almost lost it' - you do know where penicillin came from, right?

I sure do, and I can guarantee that none of the birds in my neighborhood have any STDs.

Bread should never be given to birds or any wild life. Moldy bread will kill them. I know people think this is a good thing to feed them, but it's not.

I participate in a bird studies for Cornell University and the local Audubon Society. Fruit, such as oranges and berries are wonderful for the birds, but any 'man made' product does more harm.

Did you ever see a duck with "Angel wing"? Look it up, saddest thing ever. Here's one site that explains it kbs.msu.edu

Thank you to all that care about our feathered friends.
