    The dates on food are for quality and not for safety. Food products are safe to consume past the date on the label and the quality of food should be evaluated prior to consuming and not relying on the dates.

    Some next steps are turning off lights in unoccupied rooms and avoid turning them on and off. In addition, unplugging unused gadgets around the house (i.e. small kitchen appliances, chargers, entertainment systems, etc.)
