Tips
  • Store in cool, dry area; keep package tightly closed.
  • Storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the crackers' texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, they will still be safe to consume if they have been stored properly.
  • If crackers develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, they should be discarded for quality purposes; if mold appears, discard entire package.
  • “Best By,” “Best if Used By,” and “Use By” dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality — in most cases, the crackers will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • Crackers may be frozen to extend storage life — to freeze, wrap crackers tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or place in freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
