Expired or Expiring?

April 2nd, 2007 at 10:02 am

One of the things I did this weekend was clean out medicines. After I tossed a couple of items that had been expired way longer than is likely good to take them I found some vitamins (Magnesium and Calcium) that have an expiry of 05/10.

I'm not sure if they expired in 05 or will expire in 2010, so I've written to ask. I really wish that until 2013 companies would use 4 digits for the year on expiry dates.

    You can also call the 800 no. and know right away.

    I wasn't sure if it worked from Canada or not but yanno I should have. If they don't answer me by tomorrow I'll call.

    Rule of thumb is that medicines usually expire between 1 and 2 years, so I doubt it expires in 2010. But call to be sure.
