Doug Rauch says "sell by dates" are not an indication of food safety. He's opening up a new market called Daily Table. The idea is bring affordable nutrition to inner cities of America. He says 40-percent of food produced in the U.S. is wasted each year. According to the FDA, most products passed their labels expiration are generally still safe to eat.
