Does not have a uniform system of coding expiration dates on food products as of 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The federal government only requires expiration dates on baby foods and infant formula. Other dating on food products is voluntary. How do you interpret the expiration code on your Kellogg's brand product?

I have some quaker chewy bars that's been sitting in my drawer for about a year now. I thought I should eat them up since they are just taking up the drawer's space. But before I eat them, I just wanted to make sure that they are not past the expiration date but all I see in the packaging are some weird numbers and letters. I don't know why they had to put that instead of an easier way like MR 30 04.

Everyone would know that reads as March 30th, 2004. Anyways, the marking on the bars say 0923K32C. Can anyone come up with the expiration date with that numbers and letters?

Are you sure that's expiration code? Sounds more like the batch ID to me. Maybe the date is printed on the outside of the box instead?

The recommended shelf life for Quaker Chewy Granola Bars is 6 months. Most Quaker products have 'Best Before' dates; however, some products carry a code representing the date manufactured rather than a best before date. An example of a manufacturing code is: 4H17A1. Starting at the left side, the number 4 indicates the year the product was made, that is, 2004. The first letter identifies our producing facility.
