Default "Best by" dates

I have several cans of cat food (Innova, Nutro, and Whiskas) that have
been in the cupboard for quite a while (I now feed Wellness). These are
all well past the "best by" dates. Should I throw them away or give
them to a shelter?

Throw them away. Would you give your own cats spoiled or expired food?

Why don't you eat them?


When we have food drives here, we are also asked for pet food. They
suggest to give outdated food also if we have any.

A bad practice. There is a reason they put dates on cans and packages. I
certainly wouldn't donate outdated packages of cat food to a shelter as I'd
hate to be responsible for causing illness for the felines.

true but cats are very good at detecting a problem with food. they don't
detect poison (i.e. rat/mice poison ) but do detect when its off. This
should be fine to use.
