Frozen Foods

Only a few days in the refrigerator are sufficient for raw meat and poultry. They can be frozen, though, and stored after their expiration date.

Dry pasta will last long past the expiration date. Because it doesn't contain water or any other liquid, it will stay fresh if it is kept in a dry place in an airtight container.
