Check the box for the “Expiration” or “Use By” date. Some boxes use a drawing of an hourglass for the expiration date.
If the date is in the future, the test hasn’t expired and is fine to use.
If the date has already passed, continue these steps to see if the expiration date has been extended by the FDA.
The lot number is printed near the expiration date, and may be a combination of letters and numbers. You’ll need it for the next step.
