Hi J. Santana!
Expiration date, as Dale wrote in his earlier post, is how this is usually expressed, in the US at least, though it is not necessarily printed on a product label with the date.
On actual labels of things in my own fridge:
"Best when used by:" 5/1/2006
"Best when purchased by:" 5/1/2006
"Best when used by date on package."
On non-refrigerated products:
"Best by JAN222007"
(on dried fruit package) "Best if used by" . . .
On my contact lens solution box:
"Store this solution at room temperature. Avoid freezing. Refer to expiration date on bottom of carton prior to purchase." On the bottom of the box is just the date, not the words "expiration date" repeated.
Here's what my soy milk says (Brand name: "Silk"): "Perishable! Keep refrigerated. Silk will stay fresh 7-10 days in refrigerator after opening."
"Refrigerate after opening" is seen commonly.
I have also seen "sell by" (and date is given) on items such as meat in the store. This means that the store should not sell it after that date and you, as the consumer, don't want to buy it after that date.
Hope this helps you!
