Outside date on the box says 9/16/2021 however the can label is stamped with a best used by 9/16/2018. The supplier issued a statement that it was a mistake on their part printing the wrong best used date but the product inside the tin can is safe. Per FDA, "Except for infant formula, manufacturers are not required by Federal law or regulation to place quality-based date labels on packaged food." My questions if it's not required by law:
1. Would this require to inform all customers the conflicting dates who received this product even if the product is safe?
2. Would this be considered misbranding or food fraud of some sorts?
3. What would be your corrective actions?
