Dear Consumer: Thank you for taking the time to contact our company regarding productcodes.Our manufacturing codes are composed of a series of letters and numbers that identify the date of production.
* Use Old El Paso canned green chiles, canned enchilada sauce, and dry rice mixes within 18 months of production.* Use Old El Paso cheese & salsa dip within 12 months of production.Some vendors use alphabet letters A thru L to signify the month.is the only other page on the net that has coding examples (Canned Food Alliance consortium - nice of them to interpret their own coding!! Please send me an email if you have a question of decoding a particular item.Download julian calendar (2004) as a pdf file, fairly easy to estimate if in grocery store figuring out coding of item.
Marrs candy uses week of year manufactured in their coding.M= The month of production (A= January, B=February, C=March, etc.) Y= A number standing for year of production (1=2001, 2=2002, etc.) P or PP= A letter or two letters standing for the plant DD= Two numbers identifying the date of production (01-31) Example: a production code starting with B2NV27 would indicate that the product was made on February 27, 2002.For best quality: * Use Old El Paso salsa, picante sauce, taco sauce, refried beans, whole beans, black bean dip, seasoning mixes, canned or jarred jalapeno peppers, and canned Spanish rice within 24 months of production.Speaking of technological limitations – textbooks don't provide pronunciation, audiobooks don't provide visual texts, neither can provide video and both are awkward in navigation (especially in cross-referencing).The interactive sites, on the other hand, are (currently) of a low level from pedagogical point of view, “childish”, concentrating more on visual effects.This will be a growing page of deciphering food product coding.
