Rudi's Expiration Date Question?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A few months back I bought a loaf of Rudi's sandwich bread and have yet to open the package and try it. I guess I've just been a little nervous to try it since I seemed to react to Udi's stuff. Well, a few days ago I opened the freezer and noticed that the bread had a date of September 4th. I don't know, but I guess I figured that since the bread was frozen it would have a longer date. Is this not the case? Do I now have an entire, unopened 4 dollar loaf of bread that I have to use within the next 2 days or will it still be safe to eat after the date? If I do need to do something with it in the next 2 days, what should I do with it? Please help! Thanks!

I would eat it if its been in the freezer. It won't get moldy in there. Just take a piece or two out at a time and let it thaw or toast. These dates don't mean stuff isn't safe afterthe date. It usually just means that, in the case of bread, it will dry out in the freezer and not be as good as it could be.

Note that frozen food doesn't go "bad". The expiration date is the latest date that they can guarantee the best flavor. In most cases, you would notice no change in flavor for the next couple months anyway, and if you want to keep it longer you could always wrap the frozen loaf in foil or plastic wrap, and put in back in the bag (so it's double wrapped).

Many places/company's go as far as to say "Use/Freeze Date", meaning use it or freeze it by that date.
