  • If a can of tomato paste is 3 years expired

    Best if Used by September 2007 and it doesn't stink or taste funny, it's still good, right?

    I know from experience that a can of diced tomatoes is bad after 3 years because it stinks but the tomato paste smells and tastes fine.

      I've never heard of tomato paste. Is it like ketchup?

        It's thicker than ketchup.

          My instinct is to tell you you're an idiot for risking it. But I have to admit to occasion use of past-expiration food in my life.

          But OTOH, we're talking 3 YEARS past date.

          OTOOH, properly sterilized and sealed, canned goods can last indefinitely...

            Does it have to taste funny or stink to be not good? No.

            Let us know if you die of poisoning.

              I'd say that smell is a better tool to use than labels. Bacteria that cause spoilage would give off some sort of an odor from their own waste products. Like Jrabbit says, properly sterilized and sealed, canned goods can last indefinitely.

                I vote we let Alby try and see.

                    Given that he said that it tastes fine, that ship has already sailed... now we just sit and wait to see if he ever posts again...

                            You shouldn't say bad things about the dead.

                              He might still be alive.

                              ALBIE, WHERE ARE YOU? ARE YOU ALIVE?
