I’d like a good explication of the meaning of food expiration dates. Has anyone heard a credible expert comment on this?
“It’s not rancid food. It’s not spoiled food.”
But Leslie Walker, executive director of Prisoners’ Legal Services, chafed at the use by jails and prisons of out-of-date food that may be lacking in nutritional value, when many inmates do not have other sources of nourishment.
“I think it’s disgusting,” said Walker. “My clients are all too aware that they are on the bottom of the pecking order, but to get food that is unfit for schoolchildren to consume should make it unfit for any human being to consume.”
