All Purpose Flour?

I have a bag of all purpose flour without clear expire date. It says: 11 290 548 14:27 334. Have examined packet carefully and this is all I can find. Is there a date within this number please? Judy

Hi There, The shelf life for the Robin Hood All Purpose White Flour is 18 months after the date of production. After reviewing the information you provided, we've determined your All Purpose Flour were produced on Oct 17, 2011. The manufacturing code is the date the product was made. It should look something like this: 16 365 548 15:30 5439 or 6 365 628A 1438 The first one or two numbers represent the year it was made. For instance, the 16 or 6 in our example codes means it was made in 2016. A number 15 or 5 would mean it was made in 2015, and so on. The next three numbers represent the day of the year the product was made. In our example, the 365 (or three hundred and sixty-fifth day of the year) is December 31. The following sets of numbers are further plant codes (i.e. plant number, time of production, etc.) and have nothing to do with the date of manufacture. Hope this helps. Thanks!
