How long do dates keep?

I just realized that I've had a 3.5 lb sealed plastic Costco container of deglet noor dates in my pantry for "awhile" so I checked the date - it says best by April 9, 2010. I have not opened them, and looking through the clear plastic I do not see mold, and they have not discolored... Should I assume they are okay and use them in baking, or assume they are not and toss them in the compost bin?
