Are Google Search Snippets Showing False Dates?

The other day, Bill Hartzer posted that he saw Google showing inaccurate and false dates on his articles within the Google search results. Now I see a WebmasterWorld thread started by the administrator there, with a similar complaint.

In short, some are saying their new articles are showing up with inaccurate dates in the Google snippets. I tested this on a few stories on this site and I was unable to replicate it but Bill documented it on his site.
