Just How Old Was The Cereal One Family Got From WalMart?

A family from Lakewood, Colorado bought a box of cereal from their local WalMart earlier this week.  When they finally sat down for breakfast they noticed something really bad.

They noticed that the cereal tasted a little strange and realized that it had a "BEST BY" date of February 22, 1997.  That's 21 years ago!  So far nothing bad has happened to the family members that ate any of the cereal.  WalMart and the cereal manufacturer are looking into the situation.
