One man ate 'expired' food for a year, and he's just fine

This worker is removing expired food in a Brussels supermarket. In the U. S., grocers, too, keep tabs on expiration labels, but Scott Nash's experiment shows Americans may be wasting a lot of food.

Last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yogurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date. "I mean, I ate heavy cream I think 10 weeks past date," said Nash, "and then meat sometimes a good month past its date. It didn't smell bad. Rinse it off, good to go."

It was all part of his yearlong experiment to test the limits on food that had passed its expiration date.
