40% of U.S. food is tossed

(Los Angeles Times) Leah Weinroth can only hope her son Trey’s obsession with expiration dates is a passing phase. If yogurt in the Bethesda, Md., writer’s refrigerator is even a day past the date stamped on top, the 11-year-old “acts like it’s poison” and throws it away. The same goes for packaged snacks.

“I tell him that kind of stuff doesn’t really expire,” she says. “But he just says it doesn’t taste good if it’s past its date.”

Trey isn’t the only one confused by the “sell by,” “use by” and “best before” labels on grocery-store food. So are more than 90 percent of Americans, who prematurely discard edibles because they have misinterpreted the dates stamped on the products, according to a report released Wednesday.
