is there a code involving a letter (A through M) followed by some digits? That's typically the canning/bottling date, and that's how they were with the first shipment (unless they changed/added/modified how they're marking the cans
I just picked some up in Ottawa (Richmond & Kirkwood store - there were 16 left after I bought mine). According to my eyes, the bottom of the cans say:
"I", being the 9th letter of the alphabet corresponds to the 9th month of the year. the rest is self-explanatory. Canned on September 1, 2011, best before May next year. Using "I" isn't typical in Ontario, as it looks too much like a "1," this would be "J0111" if canned here.
