Date stamped on product is mfg date, not expiration,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Heinz Tomato Ketchup, 0.32-Ounce Single Serve Packages (Pack of 200) (Grocery)
I ordered this product on May 2, 2012. It arrived as promised and the box had a date stamped on it of Feb 14, 2012. It did not clarify whether this was the manufacture date or the expiration date. I called Amazon and they found a note related to this product indicating that this is the manufacture date and that the product expires 9 months from manufacture. I suggested they update their product description with this information because it can be confusing otherwise.
So, it basically leaves me with 6 months to use this product. I doubt I will through 200 packets by then, but it is still much more convenient than finding another container to put a small amount of ketchup for single serving use.
