    expiry date

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if I can use the expression "expiry/expiration date" when referring to foodstuffs (besides the common 'best before date"). For example,

    -Throw that cheese in the bin, it's expiry date was a week ago.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello,

    For example,

    -Throw that cheese in the bin, it's its expiry date was a week ago.

    I'd say instead "Throw that cheese in the bin, it expired a week ago"

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: expiry date

    its it's just Monday evening.
    I'd say "...it expired" too, but needed an example sentence.
    Thanks a lot!!
