The expiration date on Geisha canned crab meat should be stamped on the bottom. The date may be printed year first, and may be written as a single block of numbers in the middle of other letters and numbers. Look for a block of text such as "140912" which would indicate that the contents expire in the year 2014, in September (09), on the 12th day (12). This may also be stamped on the label. On some batches you may find the code printed as month, day, year, instead, so the same expiration date may also be written as "091214."

The processor will not guarantee the product beyond the recommended 'use by' date.

Yes it does but you might have to contact the Manufacturer. The code at the bottom of the can (or even the date) is not the expiration date. Its most likely the date in which it was made.

Absolutely! Unopened, it can be kept up to the expiration date marked on the can.

In theory: Quite some time. In fact: Canned food becomes more and more tasteless and unappetizing as it ages. In practice: Discard canned food past it's expiration date.

If they were frozen before the expiration date, there shouldn't be a problem. If they have been in the refrigerator, toss them.
