What shelf-life information is included on the packaging of cooking oil?

Cooking oil may carry a "sell by" or "use by" date determined by the processor. If dates are specified on packaging, they are quality dates rather than safety dates. Food quality refers to the taste, texture, and nutritional value of food. For example, freezer burn, rancidity, and food spoilage are all quality-related issues.
