Expiration dates

An expiration date on a food item does not mean it can no longer be consumed. Dried goods, such as cereal, uncooked pasta and dried beans fall into this category. Raw meat or bread can be stored in the freezer for some time.

You can also use online databases to look up the actual shelf-life of certain foods and compare them to what the label says.
