I buy reduced stuff from supermarkets, etc as long as it still looks nice and fresh. This stuff generally has one or two days left before the use by date. I would never give something to a baby which is out-of-date. The risk is too high.

Giving babies out of date foods is just wrong on every level. They do not have strong stomachs like we do.

Shame on B&M

Free from the tap in any case.

This will be a best before date and not use by. Best before means that after this date quality may be affected but it's still safe for consumption. Use by dates are where it is deemed unsafe to eat after that date. It is against the law to sell foodstuffs beyond their use by, they can still sell it beyond the best before date.

How can water go out of date?

WTF, special water for babies. Another huge con

But out of date doesn't necessarily mean it's bad, just means it past the point where shops can sell it for full price, Ie water doesn't go off, but it still has a date on the bottle.

I can't believe anyone on the planet would give an out of date product to a child with such a low immune system... disgusting... as bad as smoking when your pregnant !

Having read this thread I've almost lost the will to live.

Seriously people (some of you) need to get your head out of the sand.

There's 9 billion people on this planet and approximately 360,000 births per day and how many have readily and easily available drinking water and here you are spending you hard earned or benefit on Heinz Baby Spring Water

I voted cold - two reasons (1). I do not agree with stores selling anything past the best before date - they could easily reduce things sooner if products are sticking and (2) why buy water - plain boiled tap water is just as good!

I am totally saddened:
1. That Heinz think this product is worthy of invention
2. That parents would actually consider it is needed

Agree. Add special laundry and bathing products. Lavender scented bath stuff was the wildest, will aid sleep! It is a marketing dream space

I guess you kind of answered this yourself.... why give a baby any food that may have it's quality affected?? It is just a "may" but why risk it just for water??

I suppose what I was saying if it is a best before then there is no food safety risk. Best before (which it likely is) will have no pathogenic issue which could result in food poisoning. Despite being a food safety lecturer and knowing the difference with use by and best before, I would still not choose to give a baby something which is beyond its best before date - that's just my choice.

I'm sure I watched a program that showed bottled water sitting in warehouses for around 2 years before finally getting shipped to the supermarket. I don't what makes baby water so special though
