Absence of "use by" dates on Mountain House pouches

Post by rationtin440 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 8:53 pm

Has anyone noticed that recently manufactured Mountain House entree pouches no longer have "use by" dates stamped on the pouch itself? I've eaten entrees that were 8 years old with no ill effect, but I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed the absence of "use by" dates on the pouches.

yes..
I recently ate a MCW entree that was from the late 90's and it tasted fresh and good. These were made by Oregon Freeze, the company that make the MH.
They say that those dry foods can last a life time if they are properly stored. :mrgreen:
