VINEGAR, BALSAMIC, COMMERCIALLY BOTTLED — UNOPENED OR OPENED
3 years best quality (safe indefinitely)
Store in cool, dark area; keep tightly closed when not in use.
Storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the vinegar's color or flavor may change, but it will remain safe to consume indefinitely if it has been stored properly.
Over time, the vinegar may become cloudy — this is not harmful; the vinegar will still be safe to consume if it has been stored properly.
“Best By,” “Best if Used By,” and “Use By” dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality — the vinegar will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
