    out of date harrisons?

    I don't know how I managed it, but I've got a bag and a half of Harrisons that are dated for Aug 2011.

    How strict do you think their use by dates are and should I chuck the lot out? it seems pretty wasteful, especially when money is tight. and Sam has been eating it for two weeks already- I didn't think to check it. i've never had it go out before= usually gets gobbled too quick!

    Thanks


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Usually food dates aren't that strict, but vitamins and such break down over time in the pellets, so he probably isn't getting as many nutrients from it as he would in fresher pellets. But I doubt it will make him sick until they're older.

    Cool
    I will get some more- and it isn't his only food source- just don't have to rush so much now and can order them online as usual
