I have a well stocked pantry and was wondering how long cannned food lasts. It appears it will last 2-5 years at full capasity if kept at 75 degrees or below. Some canned food has been found in 75 year old ships which was still good. As I searched I found this comment on the internet. Am I the only one who finds this comment (person) strange?
"I have a bad habit of shopping for supposedly non-perishables as if a fully stocked pantry will keep me alive for years after a Nuclear Holocaust. While trying to decide whether to donate my ridiculous quantity of canned goods or just throw them away; I figured the only way to know if they were good; was to try it. So I opened a can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli and ate it, right out of the can. Now I'm not feeling so hot, so I wonder: Is it just because I seldom eat this crap anymore, or should I be checking myself in to the nearest hospital to get my stomach pumped? Also, should I toss it in the trash, or haul it to the nearest shelter? I don't believe any of it more than a year old. Does anybody know the answer?"
