DigDirt2 - It’s All Because of You

In an earlier thread you indicated that my 7-year-old Hot Sauce probably wasn’t safe to eat.

I tossed 2 and a half big jars, washed the jars, and had them sitting on the counter.

A friend asked what was with the jars.

I explained.

She wondered about the all little packets of sauces she keeps from take-out.

So, I googled it. ( Safe for a really long time.)

This led to a more extensive search about other condiments.

Turns out they have a relatively short ’safe’ life - after opening. (Hot sauces are some of the longest.)

Got out the ‘specks and the magnifying glass and went thru’ the fridge.

The ‘fridge is now devoid of ALL condiments, salad dressings, etc. . (I will not reveal just how old some were.)

Then I sent this list to everyone I email.

I have gotten letters back from almost everyone declaring how empty of condiments both their ‘fridges and pantries are now.

And it’s all because of your help with my thread.

We all thank you for bringing this Listeria problem to my attention. No one wants food poisoning.

I once had a friend who always wrote on the bottle/pkg. the date she opened it. I think I will start doing the same, because, for most, the end-date starts the minute you unseal the bottle.

Dave, Thanks Again! Kate
