I placed an order for MREs to have as a supplemental food source in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. While most of the MREs had manufacture dates that were within the last two years, a few of the items were three or four years old. I consider that to be pushing it for an item that is supposed to last five years (yes, I understand they can last longer, but that depends on a lot of factors). If the item description had mentioned they were that old, I definitely would not have bought them, and certainly not at the prices they charge. I contacted customer service and they asked for photos to confirm the dates (odd, considering I would think they could just look it up in their computer), which I sent. They acknowledged the items were from an "old batch" and offered a tiny store credit. Really, that's it? Send me an item you know is close dated, don't mention that on your website, and then you offer me a measly little store credit when I notice you're trying to pass off an old product? Wow, that's integrity.
