Angry EXPIRED dates on Carnation Evaporated Milk

Be sure to check the expiration dates on the bottoms of the Carnation Evaporated Milk cans.

This is the SECOND time this has happened to me!!! I checked the expiration dates on the bottoms of the cans as I was putting thme in my cart. Some of the cans had expired in 6-09-09!!! So I put those cans back on the shelves and I immediately went and notified the manger who IMMEDIATELY removed the cans from the shelves. The first time this happened was last year at another Kroger.

Don't tell me to call Kroger corporate headquarters. I don't like speaking with them=they have been very rude to me in the past.

The next time I shop for the milk and there are expiration dates, I will call the Dept of Agriculture and Kroger will be fined big time!!!!!

Thank you for the heads up. That's something I often forget to check, so it's good to have a reminder.

Truly, I think the milk is still safe, but Kroger should NEVER do that - they really let the ball drop on that one.

The ones I have expire in about a year.

Same thing happened to me yesterday. I didn't realize it until I got home, that one can of milk had expired. This is like the third time I have bought something that has already expired from Kroger. I have been trying to always remember to check the date, but I was in a hurry.

This happens all the time at my Kroger - on all sorts of products. I don't buy anything at Kroger w/o checking the expiration dates. I've even found meat that was expired by almost 3 weeks! (Those little bacon wrapped sirloins in the shrink wrap)

I think it depends on your Kroger manager! We just got a new manager and I have had nothing but amazing luck with him! Our old manager was a joke! I would call and say I had bought something, went to use it a couple days later, and it was expired months ago and she would say well i should have looked. I had it happen once and this manager was very upset that it happened and he took care of it right away. He was also going to walk the isles and check things. This is the first time my kroger has had a manager that has cared!

I went through the same thing at one Krogers. Most of the can had dates of Jan 09! Incredible. I told the manager and two days later they were still there!!

I turned some of the cans over so the date was exposed to whom ever might want to purchase them. I didn't want to go back to the Manager and complain again.

Now at another Kroger ALL cans had dates until end of next year.

Do any of your Krogers have milk and half and half that always has a short expiration date. I buy Half and Half at Costco and it'll have an expiration date 6 weeks out, when I get it at Kroger its usually 5-7 days tops. Their milk is always expiring withing a few days too. Is it because they way over order to get it cheaper? It really annoys me - there are just 2 of us and we barely go through a 1/2 gallon a week, it expires before we can use it all, almost everytime.

I rarely have this problem, although I still always check the fresh stuff. Although usually none is expired, there can be a week or more difference between the oldest and newest dates on milk and other dairy. I bought a gallon of milk two days ago dated Nov. 11th.

We need to have more state legislatures enact laws such as Calif did requiring CVS to give $2 to customers when finding expired items on their shelves.

We are in the same situation. I make sure that when I buy a gallon I remove 1 glass worth and then freeze it. Sometimes when it is on MS, I will buy several and freeze them. Works best for skim, 1 and 2%. Defrost overnight and shake before using. We also put partials in the freezer if we are leaving for the weekend or on vacation. Never have milk spoil anymore! Haven't paid full price for milk in a longtime either.

In college I worked for a grocery chain that had 2x the price guarantee if you found an item that was past date on the shelves (or if you bought it- price paid+2x the price back). I worked in the bakery and deli, with the price of cakes and some of the fancy cheeses, you better believe you develop an eagle eye for sell by dates- you don't want the store manager coming to your department asking who screwed up It was just assumed that every employee would help spot other departments too- if you walked through a department on your way to break or the backroom, your eyes were always scanning.

I'm always finding stuff at grocery stores now, even things I don't buy I will notice a past date on- I can understand one can getting missed, but every time someone stocks the shelf they should be checking dates. I've even found things that had a use by date that preceded when a new store recently opened- that is just crazy (especially since this was 5-6 months after they'd been open).

The DBF refuses to drink milk that's been frozen and he also refuses to eat bread that's been frozen. His mom used to freeze them when he was a kid (she had 10 kids she had to feed!) and he swears it makes the milk funky and the bread stale. I guess I could freeze some to use in recipes ~ I don't drink milk at all.

Had gotten some of the cans of milk and not relized that they had expired by 4 months. Well I used 1 and it ruined the dish. I took it back to the store and they took it back with no ?s and replaced it. Found out that most of the cans on the shelf were expired!

With all the reading I do here... I feel better prepared when I hit the store.

I had actually never thought about looking for expiration dates on the Carnation milk. Because I am the idiot who never thought to even look.

But after reading this post, I went and looked through the 20 cans I had purchased. Just to make sure. And luckily they are all good till Sept. 2010. I am still bugged that they would keep milk that old on the shelf.

Speaking of fresh milk. My store never ever marks it down till it has one day till expiration. But the store near my parents... will mark down with 7 days left. So for a gallon I normally pay 1.19. But I do drink skim, 1/2%, 2% milk so it will last normally a good five days past its listed expiration date.
