    From the USDA food safety webpage: 
    • A "Best if Used By/Before" date indicates when a product will be of best flavor or quality.  It is not a purchase or safety date.
    • A "Sell-By" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale for inventory management.  It is not a safety date. 
    • A “Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. It is not a safety date except for when used on infant formula as described below.
    • A “Freeze-By” date indicates when a product should be frozen to maintain peak quality. It is not a purchase or safety date.
