Poll: Do you use food after the expiry date?
A lot of supermarket bosses say they regularly ignore food expiry dates. Do you?

A SURVEY IN the UK has found that senior executives at British supermarkets regularly ignore food expiry dates.

In interviews, the bosses said they overlook both best-before and use-by dates and instead rely on the look and smell of the food.

So we’re asking: Do you use food after the expiry date?


Poll Results:

Sometimes. (3274)
Yes, all the time (2018)
No, never. (1222)
