New way to tell when food expires


quote:


Most expiration dates only take into consideration the calendar – here's the date the product was packaged and therefore here's the date it will expire. But FreshPoint also takes into account the temperature. An item stored in a refrigerator, for example, will last longer than one merely stored at room temperature. The company produces labels with the technology built right in, Levy said, and that track the product's temperature from the time it leaves the warehouse. The labels include color-coded dots to show whether the product is safe or spoiled, so both consumers and manufacturers benefit.

At least one major American company is using the labels, though Levy wouldn't disclose which one.

This is a very good idea!

Re: New way to tell when food expires


I think that is a brilliant idea!
I [sign in to see URL] it take into account if the product that [sign in to see URL] to be kept cold, at some point was not kept as cold as it should have been?
I [sign in to see URL] know that Walmart will set product inventory on the loading doc, as people bring into the big freezer/refrigerators to restock the shelves with. AND that doc area is NOT cold, except in Winter. ( I know this because my Mom's lady friend works there. )
AND I have had more milk or cottage cheese go [sign in to see URL] ON or even a day or two BEFORE the due date. AND NEVER have any go bad that I get from [sign in to see URL] even a good week after the expiration date!

BUT I clean my fridge out every Wednesday night or Thursday morning, before setting out the trash for the collector. SO anything that is out of [sign in to see URL] if from [sign in to see URL] a day or two CLOSE to the date, I will toss it.
