Manufacturing expiration dating policy
To wait any longer than that is a gamble with tire integrity and is risky for drivers.
So what can you, as a driver, do to protect yourself?
Imagine cruising down the road on a beautiful spring afternoon or returning home after a long day at work when suddenly the back right tire of your vehicle explodes.
Luckily, you maintain control and safely maneuver to the side of the road.
Food starts to deteriorate from the moment it's harvested, butchered, or processed, but the rate at which it spoils depends less on time than on the conditions under which it's stored. A package of ground meat, say, will stay fresher longer if placed near the coldest part of a refrigerator (below 40 degrees Fahrenheit), than next to the heat-emitting light bulb.
Besides, as University of Minnesota food scientist Ted Labuza explained to me, expiration dates address quality—optimum freshness—rather than safety and are extremely conservative.
You can find the date of manufacture on the child restraint/booster seat serial label.
Every tire has a birth date—the day it was manufactured—and an expiration date that is six years from that manufacture date.
Most automobile manufacturers warn drivers to replace vehicle tires after six years.
For example, if the expiry date is January 2017, you shouldn't take the medicine after January 31 2017.
If your medicine has a use by or use before date instead of an expiry date, this usually means that you shouldn't take the medicine after the end of the previous month.
There's a filet mignon in my fridge that expired four days ago, but it seems OK to me.
