Is that milk past its 'sell by' date? Drink it anyway.
This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves in the industry and I hope on Food Recovery Lobby Day on Apr 4, 2016 we address this issue. "My father used to keep food in the refrigerator for days, even weeks after the &ldquo;best by&rdquo; date, so long as it looked and smelled OK. My mom, by contrast, went out to buy a new carton of milk as soon as the date passed. Often there would be two containers of milk in our refrigerator: the half-empty one my dad was committed to finishing, and the new one my mom had purchased, out of fear that she might get sick if she drank my dad's past-date milk."
