EMPLOYEE0Hi Kerri, sorry for the confusion. Based on the code you provided, CT 09162 C57, the Better If Used Before date for your package was September 16, 2012 (indicated as 09162).
The Better If Used Before date can appear in slightly different variations depending on the product and package type (for example the date appears differently on a cookie package versus a cereal carton). For reference, a product stamped with any of the following codes is recommended to be consumed by January 1, 2015 :
JAN 01 2015 KLA
JAN 01 15 CPC3
In the last two codes listed above, the first two digits represent the month, the next two the day and the last digit indicates the year. The letters indicate the plant location.
We label all of our products with a Better If Used Before date on the outside of the package. Our product should be used by this date to ensure the best taste and texture. The product is still safe to eat after this date but the quality of the food may decline.
