Expiry Date

An expiry date commonly means that a product is safe to consume prior to its expiry date. Given the inherent harm of tobacco use, such as with poisons and other toxic commercial products, no safety can be implied, and hence the application of an expiry date should be prohibited. Fortunately, no country in Southeast Asia currently requires the printing of an expiry date on tobacco packages. Additional information that is printed on Malaysia cigarette packs includes the manufacture/importation date (Day/Month/Year) and the manufacturer’s/importer’s name and address.
