Check The Expiry Date On That Baby Formula Before You Buy

For those of you who buy baby formula, do you check the expiry date on the package before buying? Yes, we all say we do, but it is okay if you forget.

The thing is, you may want to start checking every time after what I read about happening in British Columbia.

Turns out, there, many stores are carrying expired formula and selling it.

President’s Choice Soy Infant Formula, a liquid, was found for sale more than two months past its expiry date at a Real Canadian Superstore in North Vancouver.

We buy President’s Choice product all the time and when Harry was a baby, that was the only formula he ever had. I can’t ever remember really focusing on the expiry date. I just assumed that stores would remove that product.

I just heard more on this story on the radio. It explained that “best before dates” are guidelines and the product generally is fine months later. But an “expiry date” means remove it from the shelves and destroy it.

It then had a clip of a woman who had bought expired formula without knowing and basically, it made the baby very sick.

In the United States they have penalties for this kind of thing, but shockingly they don’t in Canada. Stores can do whatever they want with no hazards.

Thanks for looking into this CBC, you have made me aware to check that expiry date before I spend upwards of $20 on baby formula.
