Water Doesn’t Spoil, So Why Do Bottles Of Water Have Expiration Dates?

You may have never noticed it but bottles of water actually have expiration dates. This is strange since, as we know, water never goes bad. So, what do they mean after all?

The expiration dates on a bottle of water are for the bottle, not the water.

If the water is bottled for a long time and the bottle “expire,” it will start leaching various chemicals into the water. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the water is toxic, but it would make the water unpleasant to drink. But, because water is a beverage, it has to comply with the law that requires all food products sold to display an expiration date of a maximum of two years from the date of production.
