I'm amazed that everybody doesn't do this! I'm always worried that other shoppers or employees will call me out but it hasn't happened yet.
Just today I went through the salads at Fresh 'n Easy (crappy market) and found 3-4 sell-by dates, so I picked my Romaine with the latest date.
Same thing at Trader Joe's with their refrigerated nuke 'n puke dinners (microwave dinners). I always go to the back of the case and pick the latest sell-by.
And milk??? I'll look at every carton in the case to find the freshest one!
