They only put a couple of days on the best before label for fresh stuff.  It's much better than if it said best before May 23.

Airline: Jet Blue
Class: Mint
Route: SAN-JFK
Date 3/12-3/13

Meal was pretty horrible (Surprised because I saw good reviews). Main Problem was that it was frozen... FA asked if  I wanted it unwrapped and I said no. And it came frozen package said to put in fridge for 24hrs before serving (Obviously was not done) meal was supposed to be cold just not frozen guess i should complain.....
