· Sprouts Alive Alfalfa & Onion Sprouts,130 g with a UPC code of 0 69022 00039 9
The best-before date is shown in one of the following formats: "Best Before dd mm yy", "EX mmm dd yy", or "EX mm dd yy". For example, a best-before date of Sept. 11, 2009, could appear as "Best Before 11 SE 09", "EX SEP 11 09", or "EX 09 11 09".
These products have been distributed in Alberta, but may also have been distributed nationally.
