A beyond-use date of not more than one year from the packaging date or the time remaining to the manufacturer's expiration date, whichever is less, shall be placed on all unit-of-use and blister card packaging whether prepared by the pharmacist at the time of dispensing or prepared earlier in anticipation of the dispensing.

Subp. 4.

Prescription vials.

When a drug is dispensed in a prescription vial, a beyond-use date need not be printed on the label.
