So question about date coding
We use letters to indicate year and then the day of that year. ABCDEFG...etc
Last year was F and lets say first day of the year is 01 so F01 indicated january 1st, 2019. G would be 2020.
All of our products expire within 3 years. Nothing more than 3 years.
Soo this year to make our date codes into letter G for 2020, the machine isnt capable of printing G so we went back to C because the machine is capable of printing C.
C is the year 2016. And if we made product back in 2016 with date code C, it would have been expired by now since it was 4 years ago.
So from a regulatory standpoint and SQF (if any), is this ACCEPTABLE AND LEGAL?
Again we have no product with date code C anymore and we want to use C is 2020.
