Mars dating codes


First number is year (0-9) second letter is month (A-L, which is Jan-Dec).However, some codes are like JAN2010, which needs no explanation.If the MRE bag is dark brown, that means your MRE is from 1995 or earlier.In 1996, they switched over to the tan-colored bags.



For example, a tan #4 Ham Slice would have had to come from 1996-1998 because it was discontinued in 1998.A typical case will have both a packed date and an inspection date.The inspection date on MREs is usually three years after the packed date.Similarly, if you have a brown #6 Chicken Ala King, you can tell from the menu list that the last time that MRE was used was 1992 – so yours could be from 1992 or earlier.

The same sort of theory works for the newer tan MREs.

Here are some examples of date codes stamped on various MRE components: It can be more difficult to date individual unopened MREs because until 2003, date codes weren’t stamped on the actual MRE bags themselves.
