European Expiration Dates
The European baby formula packets have their own German language and even the minutest detail like the date format is their own and not the once followed in US. They are not only strict in their standards but they tend to use their language over the packet and use their format.
Here goes the complete demonstration:
American date format is: MONTH, DAY, and YEAR
If the date is 8-12-2019 then the date is displayed as August 12 2019
European date format is: DAY, MONTH, and YEAR
If the date is 8-12-2019 then the date is displayed as 8th December 2019
Likewise the European formula packets use German language but the inside of the packet does have instructions in English.
