If I bought a box of cereal in June 2013 and the box says use by 3/2013 is this still good to eat?

You could take it back to the store, it was already out of date when you bought it.

You're welcome. I would probably eat the cereal. The use by date is just a recommendation.

Yup, depending on where you live and how crunchy the cereal is supposed to be. In our super humid environment, even well sealed items go "flat" when sitting around too long!:-(.

You could still eat it, although it's likely going to be stale like Walt said.
