One would espose more confidence in the CFIA when date labeling becomes easy to read on labels and manditory.

Bi-lingual labels are required, why not a standard date field labeling method with highlighted date of manufacture in standard day, month, year, or year, month, day, or any other order as long as it is not confusing, worker or shift, and expiry date?

Just try to find it on most products, particularly canned goods and dairy products.

Every manufacturer appears to do their own thing.

Obviously the CFIA has dropped the ball on this issue for a long time, just don't care, or are too busy making sure all products sold in Canada have French and English labels with ingredients.
