Idea Exchange: Keep expiration dates and lot numbers with food

After emptying my pet's food into a plastic storage container, I clip the expiration date with lot number from the bag and keep it inside the container with the food. I usually bury it under the food or push it to the side to keep it out of the way. Then if a problem occurs with the food, I have the necessary information. With the recent food recalls, I am sharing this idea with more of my clients.
