    When I was about 8 years old, my entire family was hospitalized for severe food poisoning and we spent about a week in the hospital on IV's and whatnot. It's when I learned the term "projectile vomiting." It was either bad tuna or bad mayo, but to this day I'm nervous about eating anything WAY pass the expiration date. Around 1998, I got food poisoning real bad a second time at US Steel at Irvin Works from bad chicken in the mess hall, that was rough too but not has bad as when I was a kid.

    SO, you won't see me eating most things pass Expiration Dates, would rather go shoot a deer in the backyard and gnaw on that for a couple of weeks.

    Well, ALDI shoppers aren't dropping over like flies are they? I got food poisoning from "fresh" romaine lettuce straight from poop loving California just two years ago.

    Aldi's food including their canned selections are all within date, most several years out from expiration.

    Food poisoning is a strong deterrent for me. The more meat that is involved, the less likely I am to gamble past the date.

    Bad milk has a real bad taste that I only seem to taste when it hits the back part of my tongue!

    I was eating Cs in Basic 1984, MREs came out about that time, and I got the "Pleasure" while at AIT.

    Meats, dairy, and prepackaged salads - we generally adhere to the dates. If we freeze the meat, we go by the condition it is in after freezing.

    Canned good - dates generally don't matter for most things for us.

    Bread - If it hasn't gone stale and it doesn't have mold, it still gets eaten.

    Eggs - store bought eggs, we probably will still use for a few days after. Unwashed farm eggs with no dates - we generally eat them upto 30 days after buying them if we refrigerate them. 2 weeks if we keep them out.
