    Default Do Antibiotic Expiration Dates Matter?

    No date

    This is part 2 in our special series about antibiotics controversies . See part 1, about fish antibiotics for humans, here.

    The expiration date is not a magic number. This is one of the first things preppers (preparedness-minded people) learn when they start stockpiling. Shelf-stable products tend not to suddenly go rancid on the stamped date. Sometimes they last a long time after that.

    Their quality, however, may begin to decrease. A can of vegetables thatís a while past its date may not taste as good. A supplement may be less potent. An antibiotic may not work as well

    I am totally nuts about expiration dates, sell by dates, use by dates, etc. I understand stuff doesn't automatically go bad on the exact date stamped on the product. I just find it very difficult to use anything past the expiration date.

    Oh my, Mr. Wizard. Oh my. I'd pay attention to medications if I had any, but I practically ignore expiration dates on canned, jarred or bottled goods. Why, I still have specialty items that I snagged from the food bank back when I was eligible for that assistance ó meaning 11 or 12 years ago! I must remember never to invite you to dinner.... lol!
