Kool cigarette dating codes
Local retailers are presently selling marlboro "red" soft packs with julian dates of 282 from last year, produced 7 months ago.After inquiring i found they also have more recent julian dates from a couple of months back.Since Marlboro has changed the lot stamp on cigarettes here is a quick how to for finding a stale pack before you leave the store.An example Phillip Morris bar code is: V159Z94A5 V (or first letter) = the state of manufacture with this one being Virginia 159 (or the next 3 numbers) = the day of the year the cigarettes were made.
Let's face it, we have all tried a value or discount brand and we can all pretty much say we have had a stale pack at least once.
