Use-by dates - what are they and what do they mean? Use-by dates tell us when we can eat a certain food by. If the date has passed, the food is no longer safe to eat and must be thrown away.
If a use-by date is coming up, and you don’t think you will eat the food in time, you can freeze the food and eat it after the use-by date - this helps reduce food waste!. It’s important that once you defrost the food, it must be cooked and eaten straight away.
