They do have expiration dates but some of them may have been on the box and not the tube. When I got mine on ebay, it had one. The one I already had at home didn't.

Here is what I found from the Lansinoh website...

If your tube has expired, we do not recommend using it for breastfeeding. If you have used it before you noticed that it had expired, do not worry, it is ok. Lansinoh HPA Lanolin, because it is ultra purified and bacteriostatic, will inhibit growth of bacteria. If your tube has been opened and expired, we don't recommend using it and would recommend buying a new tube.

The expiration date can be found at the end of the tube, on the back, where the crimp is. It will say 'EXP' followed by the month and then the year.

I checked my open container and it doesn't expire until 05/10, and my daughter is 2, so I'm betting yours is okay too.

I was wondering the same thing... I don't think it does, I didn't see an expiration date on it.
