When traveling, my packing-list includes emptying out the fridge before heading to the airport. Fortunately, I have almost nothing perishable in the fridge (chocolate, cliff bars, coffee, beer, vodka all last a *long* time), so this is quick.
However, when throwing out the last of the milk, I noticed the expiry date:
- A typo; ARP should be APR! Huh!? I always assumed those dates were all computer timestamped, but is there really a human putting in a new expiry date every day? Has anyone else ever noticed something like this?
- Since when did milk last over a month? This milk was bought slightly over a week ago (approx Feb 20th) and claims to be good until April 5th, which is approx 6 weeks!?! How is that possible? I’m used to milk only being good for a few days.
