Wasn't sourdough was it?

Here's a blurb from WebMD:
Do Food Expiration Dates Really Matter?
The "best by" date does seem to matter with these (probably baking powder leavening, Southern-style buttermilk biscuits). Could have been bad handling, but the date issue is also a problem for me, since it seems the store should be more on top of these things. When a grocery store (with the word Food in its name) isn't handling their frozen foods as well as Target does, IMO something's not right.
