And are supermarket "sell-by" and "use-by" dates a bit of a con to encourage us to buy more food, and throw out perfectly edible stuff? Are you worried about exceeding these dates, or do you just use them as a guideline, but no more? Have you been ill because you re-cooked chicken? If so, has it stopped you? Have your habits changed during the recession? If they stuck to the rules, how would poor people such as beggars and the homeless fare - would these people relax the health rules a bit, and, if so, would they necessarily become ill from food poisoning?
