Hi I would like to know the expiry date of these liquid iron supplements
Medicines have expiry dates so you know when to use them by. After the expiry date medicines may not be safe or as effective. You should not take medicines after their expiry date. If you've had a medicine for a while, check the expiry date before using it.
You should also make sure that you've stored the medicine properly, as described on the packaging or leaflet.
If your medicine looks, tastes or smells different to when you first got it, even if it's within the expiry date, take it to your pharmacist for advice.
The best before date, sometimes shown as BBE (best before end), is about quality and not safety. The food/supplement will be safe to consume after this date but may not be at its best. Its flavour and texture might not be as good. Best before dates appear on a wide range of foods/vitamins/supplements.
Unfortunately, we do not have an exact expiry date as our warehouse is located away from our office, however, it is usually a minimum of 6 months. unless specified in the product title.
