There are such things as expiration dates, you guys. A foodbank in England reported that someone dropped off a can of Heinz Kidney Bean Soup (yuck!) during a recent food drive. All estimates date the can of soup to pre-1972. The price tag on the can was in shillings, a currency no longer used in the UK.
It's a record!! Never had a donation with 10d on before! Please could we remind everyone that food donated needs to be in date! Thank you :) pic.twitter.com/EVf5qMulA6— Cardiff Foodbank (@CardiffFoodbank) October 5, 2017
"Probably what's happened is that it is harvest time and lots of people clean out their cupboards and donate items that the have never used and don't really look at them," Helen Bull, a fundraising officer from Cardiff Foodbank, told Metro.
"Unfortunately, what sometimes happens is that when an older person dies the family will clean out the cupboards and they want to donate and don't necessarily realize that it was out of date."
Folks were even trying to get the foodbank to send it back stateside (I'm guessing) to our lovely Heinz History Center!
Contact Heinz they might give you a donation for it. I'm sure it would be interesting to them for research purposes. @HeinzKetchup_US— Vaun (@VaunEarl) October 6, 2017
