Metamucil - check your expiration date!
Posted by on
Just a bit of FYI if you're buying Metamucil.

I have a relative who uses this and she can't find any in the town she lives in... that is she can't find any that's not expired.

So I found her a couple of cans of her favorite flavor here and will bring them the next time I visit.

But... when I was looking for it, I too found the issue is here too. Of the 4 cans for sale, 2 had expired back in June. I purchased the other 2 cans since they each had about a year left before expiration.

So.. regardless of where you buy it... check the expiration date on the bottom. You might be a little surprised.

Good advice Pepper. In fact its good advice for all medicines and foods. I find a lot of expired items on the shelf. Stores need to pay closer attention!

A lot of that kind of product is stocked and rotated by a rep from whatever drug company makes the product.. all the store does is provide the space...

OF I worked retail for years and not one rep from any drug company ever stepped foot in our store to check the over the counter products. The only reps that came in went straight back to the pharmacy to pitch their latest and greatest prescription miracle that just hit the market that had no generic equiv available. The store management was responsible for rotating OTC meds.

The only reps that ever came to our stores were coke, pepsi, frito lay, Mothers, and a few of the booze and cigarette companies. Those were the ones who bought space.

John... It's been forever since I worked in retail so I must bow to your expertise...

So what exactly happens when a fiber product expires? Does it stop working? I've never really thought about it....
