My Convatec bags and flanges have no expiry date. Is this normal ?

Hi.  I checked mine and they have an expiration date on the side of the box that they come in.  It is located right next to a little hourglass figure.  I use Hollister bags.  I normally change bags twice a week.........sometimes more often.  I have a retracted stoma so I have to deal with leakage at times.  With me, the expiration date really does not make a difference because I can go through a box of bags in less than a month.  Debi
