Might be a little OT, but how about 40-50 years ago? I realize that knowledge about food safety has vastly improved... but WHY were we able to put frozen chicken to thaw in the morning, cook it that night and NOBODY ever got sick? Also think the whole "best if used by" date is a bit of a ploy to get people to toss food that is perfectly safe and buy more??
