“Open Dating” on a food product is a date stamped on a product’s package to help the store determine how long to display the product for sale.
It can also help the purchaser to know the time limit to purchase or use the product at its best quality. After the date passes, while it may not be of best quality, refrigerated products should still be safe if handled properly and kept at 40 °F or below. If product has a “sell-by” date or no date, cook or freeze the product as soon as possible.
