Labelling requirements for fresh fruits and vegetables
Durable life date - fresh fruits or vegetables
Prepackaged fresh fruits or vegetables are exempt from displaying a durable life date ("best-before" date) [B.01.007(3)(a), FDR]. If the durable life date is voluntarily applied to a prepackaged product that is packaged for retail sale (i.e., consumer prepackaged fresh fruits or vegetables), the information must be declared in the proper format [B.01.007(6), FDR]. If the durable life date is voluntarily applied to a prepackaged product that will not be sold at retail, the information is not required to be declared in the format as mentioned above.
Refer to Date Markings for more information.
