Watch: You never know what you'll find when you clean out your refrigerator

One family’s disagreement over expiration dates has caused laughter across the internet.

Los Angeles resident Alanna Barron posted a TikTok when her family decided to clean out the fridge over Thanksgiving. The video quickly went viral, garnering over 11.5 million views as of publication.

Her brother and sister-in-law are going through the fridge finding bottles for what has been dubbed “the annual refrigerator purge.” Alanna shows the expiration date of a bottle of sesame oil: Feb. 25, 2015. “This is not ok,” the on-screen caption reads. One bottle of Sriracha has a “best before” date of August 2018, a murky bottle of clam juice and blue cheese olives expired in 2022. She tries to keep an unopened bottle of yellowing artichoke dip from being tossed into the garbage to audible protests from every other family member.

“It’s changed colors. You have to stop,” says Alanna’s father Bob Barron, presenting his argument while wearing an oven mitt on each hand. “No, stop it!” Maria replies.

In the more than 13,700 comments under the video, folks empathized with the plight of both sides of the expired food battle, outlining their own experiences with family members that love to hold onto groceries a little too long.

“why is this such a universal experience hahahahahahha,” commented one TikTok user.
