I have never heard of expiry and I've traveled to half of the United States, and lived in several different states.  I've only heard of expiration date, and that's what I say when talking about things that have expired.

I also always say expiration date and not expiry.  But, looked it up and most of the citations seem to be outside the US.  So, I imagine expiry date is used more in British English.
