Dateline NBC attempts to answer the question "how safe and fresh is the meat, chicken and fish we buy in the supermarkets? ... By conducting hundreds of interviews, examining regulations in 50 states, and secretly tracking thousands of pieces of meat, Dateline uncovered evidence of a widespread deception crossing both state and corporate lines, involving the largest grocery store chains in the nation. (The) investigation centered on 'sell-by' dates -- those tiny dates stamped on every package that are supposed to tell us how old meat is and when to throw it away."
