Open dating product
Within our Terms and Conditions of supply, product dating, or lack thereof, does not release a customer from proper inspection when receiving goods, and does not warrant fitness of a product for any particular use.Such claims must be brought within one year of shipment from Sigma-Aldrich or a Sigma-Aldrich Authorized Distributor.the Guidelines cover open date labeling of shelf-stable foods, as well as refregerated and frozen foods, and will help food processors establish a voluntary standard for the entire industry to follow with regard to labeling. It doesn't hurt that the majority of dairy foods also taste great just as they are.
This procedure is also subject to our continuing improvement programs.
Also note that eggs are not really a dairy product and should be placed under the protein section.
We chose to place them here, under the dairy section, since they are almost always found in "your grocers dairy case" and have therefore become linked, in most minds, as a dairy product even though they are actually an animal by-product.
If Sigma-Aldrich does not retest a lot in question, we recommend that customers evaluate the product to ensure that it still matches their needed specifications.
Recommended Re-test Dates on our labels and/or Certificates of Analysis are valid only if the product is stored under Sigma-Aldrich’s defined conditions, and the container has remained unopened with original tamper evident seal still intact.
