Date of expiry?
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?
