Almost every component that goes into an MRE has a date code stamped on it in the form “0132” (see above explanation).Everything from entrees, crackers, peanut butter, accessory packs, etc. If you can open up your MRE, you should be able to figure out how old each piece is.

Freshness Code, Date Codes, Stamp Code, Expire Date or Manufactures Code A lot of the smaller companies just stamp a Best Before date on the package. company, 071 is the 71st day of the year, 9 is the year 2009 and 1 is the shift they were made on which is the 1st .

First number is year (0-9) second letter is month (A-L, which is Jan-Dec).

However, some codes are like JAN2010, which needs no explanation.

Look at which menu # the MRE is and then look at the menu listing to see if you can nail down a closer date.

For example, a tan #4 Ham Slice would have had to come from 1996-1998 because it was discontinued in 1998.

To get a better idea of the MREs age, take a look at which MRE you have.

If you have a #8 Ham Slice, you’re out of luck because that could have come from 1990-1995. However, if you have a brown #4 Chili Macaroni, you’re in luck – because that MRE was introduced in 1995 in a brown bag and every #4 Chili Macaroni after that (1996-2003) was packaged in a tan bag.
