The report used a DNA sequencing workflow to identify that “4 of the 21 vegetarian samples we tested had hygienic issues” and that “10% of vegetarian products contained meat”.

Quorn products are good for 21 months in your freezer given that they're frozen and properly handled without thawing. Quorn's newer products should have a "best-by" date on them, however if you're looking for the expiration date of a Quorn product and don't see this, you can use the printed date code to determine whether or not the product has expired.

Printed on the pack, you'll find a date code that should be 10 digits long. For example: 2651031415

26 = is the plant code

5 - the last digit of the year (2015)

103 = the Julian date (the 103rd day of the year = April 13th)

1415 = military time/24 hour clock = 2:15 pm

This product was made April 13, 2015 at 2:15 pm.
