What shelf-life information is included on the packaging of avocados and/or guacamole?

Fresh avocados typically are sold individually and don't carry a "sell by" or "use by" date. Store-bought guacamole may carry a "sell by" or "use by" date determined by the processor. These dates denote quality rather than safety. Quality refers to the taste, texture, and nutritional value of food. For example, freezer burn, rancidity, and food spoilage are all quality-related issues.
