How Long Is Food in Your Fridge Safe Past the Expiration Date?
With more people stocked up on food to cook at home, many are wondering how long stuff lasts in their fridge. Does passing an item’s expiration date mean you must throw it out? Chef Lauren Van Liew is showing us what food is still good to eat after its sell-by date. She says eggs are usually good for three to five weeks past the date on the packaging, and that meat can be eaten six to eight months past the expiration date, assuming it’s properly stored in the freezer.
