Shelf Life of Canned Foods

Can you tell me if a can of sweet and sour is any good after you have had it still in the can, unopened for 6 years?

Somewhere on the can is a date stamp that will give you this information. Use the product before this expiration date. Or you can call the manufacturer and read the date stamp numbers to them and they will give you the needed information.

My ex-husband once opened a can of K-ration labled 'Beef' from WWII. It looked good and smelled good so he ate it, like most men would. That was over 40 years ago and the SOB still lives.
