[Histonet] discarding old dry chemicals with no expiration date

I was going to comment about "how important" some people seem to feel to find "something" to add to the inspection report even when it is unsubstantiated, about how many of those chemicals are extracted from mines where they have existed for eons, how the only important thing is to make sure that those designated as anhydrous have to be kept that way in order to assure the quality of the solutions and that everything else is almost ridiculous, but I better don't because I may "hurt" some feelings!

Our lab recently had our CLIA inspection and the surveyor informed me that we need to discard any dry chemicals with an opened date of more than 10 years, even though none of the dry chemicals have an expiration date. This was not written up as a deficiency, but it was suggested we follow up on this for our next re-certification.
 I am sure it is best to keep the chemicals current, but is this what all labs are doing?
