No expiration date

Pansin ko lang bat minsan di nakalagay ang expiration date ng mga products na binebenta sa Pinas. Meron bang law na nagrerequire nito.


  • if for food, meron! check out RA 7394 or the Consumer Act of the Philippines. Article 84 provides additional labelling requirements (in addition to those provided under Article 77) for food. Here's the provision:
    ARTICLE 84. Additional Labeling Requirements for Food. — The following additional labeling requirements shall be imposed by the concerned department for food:
    a)expiry or expiration date, where applicable;
    b)whether the consumer product is semi-processed, fully processed, ready-to-cook, ready-to-eat, prepared food or just plain mixture;
    c)nutritive value, if any;
    d)whether the ingredients use are natural or synthetic, as the case may be;
    e)such other labeling requirements as the concerned department may deem necessary and reasonable.

    hope this helps!
