This has a tomato base and it could be loaded with botulism and you may not know it so do not take a chance even if it looks/smells okay.
Discard it and buy new or use something else instead.

This is to far gone, we are talking about years later! There is some length of time after one's date, but this is entirely to long for safety reasons. Here's why -

That's too old, so I would think not. Best to toss and buy a new one.

I agree with the idea of tossing it out. I think it is too far passed it's expiration date.

5 years is too old. I would not use it.

I've read that some McDonald's sauces can be stored unopened for 3-4 years - such as hot pepper sauce, with ground pepper, vinegar packets; ketchups and mayonnaise-based sauces - with cheese, mustard, etc. - for 1 year; olive oil, mustard, soy sauce - for 1-2 years.


Sauces with an endless list of chemicals and artificial preservatives designed to maintain an extraordinarily long shelf life. Sauce made with natural herbs, spices, and liquids degrades over time, even when sealed and stored properly. Even the vinegar and acid in tomatoes, which are preservatives, do not last forever.
Look at list of ingredients on the bottle of your sauce. Then open it and examine it. If your sauce has off-putting smell, change in appearance, mold, then throw it away immediately.
If your sauce does not have all of these signs, then the likelihood that you will get poisoned from it is not so great, but 5 years for a sauce is already too much. I would not advise taking risks by using your sauce.

I'm making a pot full now. Just added my 2019 expiry date bottle. Smells beautiful. Let you know if I die.

Vinegar does not expire. I'd use it. Someone else mentioned a tomato base, no. Ezy Sauce doesn't contain any tomato products.
