Supermarket That Sells Only Expired Food Is Now Open!

Do you ever throw something away just because the expiration date has passed. (i’m not talking by months…just days) well if you do, THIS might not be the place for you to shop. Although if you’re willing to try it, they sell items up to 50% off the regular price.

According to a 2013 study co-authored by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic found that 91% of us admit to sometimes tossing food due to the sell-by date “out of a mistaken concern for food safety.” It’s mistaken, because the date labels don’t signal when food is unsafe, but when the manufacturer thinks the food will taste best. “Foodborne illness comes from contamination, not from the natural process of decay,” an NRDC scientist told Consumer Reports last year. “And our senses are well-equipped to recognize decay.”
