Good Question: Why Does Aged Cheese Have An Expiration Date?

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – Some things get better with time, until suddenly they don’t. Glen Cole asked this Good Question: “If cheese is sold as “aged,” why do grocery stores put an expiration date on it.

ANSWER: According to Sara Vivenzio of the Cheese School of San Francisco, how long you can keep cheese depends on what kind of cheese it is. Raw cheese has an expiration date you need to pay attention to. While aged cheeses are a bit more flexible.
