Several ways I can think of (completely untested):
(1) Use http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/date-and-time-functions.html#function_str-to-date
(or whatever equivalent function in your db) to convert the column to
date before comparison

(2) Pick a time to alert the user (e.g. ONE WEEK before expiration),
then use whatever programming language of your choice (e.g. php) to
convert the date into the format used in expiration attribute (e.g.
using date_format). Then you only need to compare for exact string
