Dear Valued Consumer:
Thank you for taking the time to contact Green Giant regarding product codes.
Manufacturing codes are used internally as a way of tracking production. Our manufacturing codes are composed of a series of letters and numbers, usually on the top or bottom of the packaging. The letter, from A-L stands for the MONTH the product was produced. "A" stands for January, "B" stands for February, and so on through "L" for December. The second symbol is always a number. It is the last digit of the Year the product was packaged. For example, B0P25 would indicate that the product was manufactured on February 25, 2000.
For best quality we recommend using our Green Giant canned vegetable products within 2 years of the manufacture date, with the exception of:
Peas = 3 years
Mushrooms = 4 years
For best quality we recommend using our Green Giant frozen vegetable products within one year of the manufacture date, with the exception of Corn-on-the-Cob, which is 20 months.
We appreciate your interest.
