Meh, it's not hard... there are a few things best to err on the safe side, but food doesn't generally expire or go bad as fast people think. 1/2 the time the dates are simply guidelines, if not misleading.

Some one always posts the hur-dur salt expires pic in these threads. I'm unsure if they are making a joke or actually believe that something won't degrade over time once it's removed  from where it naturally occurs and is placed in an environment with fluctuating light, temperature and humidity.
