Hmmmm . . . .I have the opposite problem.   Every once in awhile, one of 
my kids will call me from the kitchen and ask, "Mom - are these green pork 
chops in the refrigerator still good?"

RE: [Histonet] Special Stain "Storage"

I must have OCD - I put the date of purchase on my spices and other things 

like coffee and tea that are in the pantry and on baggies of fruit and 
veggies and meat in the freezer. I also have boxes of like things in the 
refrigerator and pantry. My grandmother used to do this and she wasn't 
a histotech!
