Neighbor gave me a bunch of Gerber Preschooler Meals; they expired Aug. 1.

I say no to serving them to my daughter. DH says yes. Ladies, what would you do?

Thanks!

  • Throw them out just don't tell your neighbor.

  • Contact Gerber and ask them. They will know if that's a "best by" or a "sell by" or an actual expiration date. They will, of course, give you the best answer regarding what to do - they want to keep you as a customer. And who knows? sometimes calling a customer service line will result in them sending you cents-off or even free item coupons!

  • I would say no under any circumstances. They are loaded with pesticides and genetically modified garbage.

  • If it says "best by" or "expires on" then no....if it says "sell by" then still no, cause even then you can only go about a week past the date printed. No no no to that food! And shame on hubby for trying to give the kid food poisoning, lol.

  • I definitely would not. I am a stickler for expiration dates!
