Found some ground rice with a use by of 2013.  Not auditing kitchen stores – another black mark.  But as I wanted to cook shortbread, I merely inspected it for crawlers trying to make an exit, then tipped it in.

  1. Well done. use by dates seem often wide of the mark. I downed a bottle of Belgian beer the other night that was over 2 years past its sell by date. Expected it to explode or make me sick. It and I were fine. Living life in the fast lane!
