American Best By Dates

I was confused by the best by date on a packet of crutons I found here in America.

How could you possibly have a best by date over 100 years in the future?

Of course I had forgotten that the US likes to put the date in a stupid order if Month Day Year. Though I feel it was partially the manufacturer's fault for not putting a space or other divider.
