Ack! Poison!

Can you get mono from drinking expired Aquafina?

Seriously, I'm not an idiot. I know you can't get mono from expired Aquafina, but I just realized I've been drinking some rotting bottled water that I must've had stored in my basement for longer than I thought. Why does water need an expiration date? And what will happen to me now that I've drank it? Do I need to call the 1-800 number on the bottle? Please advise.

Semi-related: re-heated Chalupas from taco bell also taste like poison. FYI.

I say call the 800#. If nothing else, maybe the CSR will be as nice as the Time Warner lady.

So maybe since you're home sick and you have all sorts of free time you could update your Fun Junk page? ;)
I mean, only if you can find time between all those super-cool movies you're watching. haha. Feel better!

You have to call the 800 number! I'm sure someone in India will answer, and you could act all panicked and ask them what you should do. Hilarity shall surely ensue.

I think some robitussin will do the trick.

After a brief (but exhaustive) search, it turns out that even the USDA isn't worried about your water. According to them, "Except for infant formula and some baby food, product dating is not required by Federal regulations".

In other words, the sell by date on some food is just there because consumers like it, and because it helps the grocer rotate stock.

So don't worry - you can stay hydrated!

(Also - not the same angela who commented above, btw.)

Maybe you got mono from Taco Bell. Seriously, take a close look at the kind of people that work there. Have you seen the show about what people do to your food before serving it if you piss them off or if they are just bored and on a power trip? Ack.

I read a newspaper article not too long ago that rated the cleanliness of fast food restaurants based on many different factors. Surprisingly, Taco Bell came in #1 as the cleanest, nationwide, with the least amount of "violations". Arbys and BK didn't fare so well. I eat at them all.
