How do you read the expiry date on Italpasta products?

For Italpasta cello packages, the expiry date is located on the front panel. It is a six-digit code stamped in black ink and reads as YEAR – MONTH – DAY. For example, 2009 SEP 28 indicates that the product will expire on September 28, 2009.

For Italpasta boxed packages, the expiry date is located on one of the top or side panels and follows the format listed above.

For Italpasta tomatoes and sauces, the expiry date is located on the cap. It contains both letters and numbers and is listed according to the Julian calendar. For example, 93TC 9134A would mean the 134th day of the year (365 days being in 1 year) and 9 represents the year. The expiry date is May 13, 2009.
