Does anyone know how to determine the batch date from the code on the can?

For example 41E20917 is printed on the lid of a quart of Aura. That code for SW would most likely mean the batch date was 9/20/17 and 41E would be the location. But I am not sure how BM does it.

First two numbers are the plant code.
The letter is the year, starting with A = 2017.
The next three digits are the ordinal date (Jan 1st = 001).
And IIRC, the last two digits are a plant-specific job id.

So for your example the date would be July 28th 2021 (E = 2021, 209th day).
