What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Maryland
I work for a company that sells out of date drinks. They purposely remove the dates and sell the products. Is it against the law to do this?

Believe it or not, probably not.

Only very specific products (Milk, eggs, meat) have to have a "use by" date.

Most products do not. The date is put on as a courtesy.
