Title: Use by and best before dates (video)
Summary: Remember that a 'use by' date means just that: use the product on or before that date. Food with a use by date can't legally be sold after that date. A 'best before' date means that the food may have lost some quality or nutrition after that date but it can be sold or eaten for a little while after that. There are slightly different rules for bread which can be labelled with a 'baked on' or 'baked before' date. Date marking will only work if you follow the storage instructions on the label. So if a product says refrigerate at or below 4 Celsius – do just that.
