Basmati rice advice needed

DS | Jun 29, 2005 06:17 PM

I made a special trip today to an Indian market to get some Basmati rice. They were out of my usual brand (Kohinoor?), and I ended up with a 10 pound container of Elephant 817 Aged Rice. When I went to put it away, I noticed that it has a sticker identifying May 2003 as the manufacturing date. Does that mean that my rice is stale and I should return it? Or is that what they mean by "aged" rice? I'd appreciate some guidance. Thanks!
