Date of ex­piry?

- Food

In the af­ter­noon of Septem­ber 5th, I pur­chased 500 gms of cake shav­ings / crumbs from a lead­ing baker and caterer down Jetawana Road which had the pack­ing date as 4.9.2020 and the ex­piry date as 11.9.20.When my daughter opened the packet in the evening of the same day, she got a ran­cid smell and wanted me to re­turn same.

When I took this stuff to the out­let, he im­me­di­ately re­funded the cash af­ter he found that the cake was stale. I am now won­der­ing how cred­i­ble are the dates – man­u­fac­ture, pack­ing, pro­duc­tion, ex­piry, etc dis­played on the con­tain­ers/packs when a com­pany of re­pute which claims that ev­ery item of food pro­duced by them has that ex­tra bit of per­sonal com­mit­ment and care mar­kets out-dated stuff with in­cor­rect dates of pro­duc­tion and ex­piry?
