Expired baby food
March 5, 2009 7:54am CST
ok so i woke this morning to a horrible sight. last night i was cleaning our cupboards out and pulled the expired baby food jars out. we had gotten some from a friend of the family who wasn't going to use them for her son anymore. i went to bed early last night and my boyfriend fed one of the jars to my daughter. i keep waiting for the dr's office to open so i can call and see how bad this is. the food expired 9/08! i have looked on line for information but have come up with nothing!! i decided to look here for answers next while i keep searching.

Honestly, she will probably be just fine. I have read on the internet before that on a lot of canned (and I am assuming jarred foods as well) the expiration date does not really mean anything. If it is stored in a cool dry place and there is no sign of tampering with the can then canned foods can be safe to eat for a few years past the date on them. I don't see jarred foods being any different.
