There is a new dent and bent store in my town. They had some good deals on diapers and wipes and a few other things. I went to look in the food sections and was about to buy some food items. When I went to look at the expiration dates som e of them were a year old or older! Baby food, mac n cheese, canned foods, cereal, pastas, salad dressings, and more! is this legal??? dont they have to tell you that the food is really expired?? is it safe to eat some of this food thats this old and expired by that long?? its not even really that much cheaper than the food they have at walmart.Answer Question

While some foods are ok past the exp date, you never are supposed to use baby food past the exp date. Babies are more supseptible to food poisoning than grown ups are, who've been around a while and built up a tollerence to many bacteria and such. I have had exp baby food in my pantry before. My first 2 kids are 20 months apart, so when my first baby out grew baby food before eating it all I saved it for my second baby. I opened a few of the jars just a month or two after the exp date and it was already darker than usual and had a funny smell.
