    found some old peanut butter...

    it smells okay, i guess. not exactly fresh. however, the date says "Jul 30 03LV". i assume that means 2003??

    should i eat this? i'm really hungry but i don't want to die either. WWJD?

    He'd have faith in himself and eat the peanut butter. Don't let Jesus down.

    Just wash it down with some bleach. That'll kill anything that might be growing in it.

    if the lid has a date code of 2011 it can cause salmonella, the peanut butter, not the lid.

    I don't recommend consuming the peanut butter. The oil can go rancid. In case you're not familiar with rancid, it tastes really bad, can give you the runs and make you puke. Won't kill you, or necessarily send you to the hospital, but you'll sure wish you hadn't eaten it.

    If it's rancid, toss it. If it just smells stale, go ahead and eat it. It'll make you want to toss it and get fresh pb anyways.

    I'll give you five dollars if you eat the peanut butter. That's right, I'm making it interesting now.

    I ate some rancid sunflower seeds once. I can no longer even stand the smell of them.

    I'll throw in a random bike part, of my choice. Now it's REALLY interesting! Perhaps you'll get a disk wheel, perhaps only a bit of wire from trimming my brake cables.

    - umm... that would be 2111, not 2011... you must be thinking of Beverly Hills?

    :-)

    p.s. i just checked the pantry... i have *four* unopened jars w/the 'bad' code... gonna go make me a sandwich out of each one over the next four days... if i end of OK, i'll eat the stuff, then take each lid back to the supermarket for four free new jars! (just kidding)
