Expired can food and tea
I know that expiration dates are more of a guideline. I am still more inclined to go by those dates but I really don't want to be wasteful I cleaned out my pantry today and found some can goods and a few boxes of tea all of which expired. Cream of type soups (expired in 2003 and 2004) Vegetarian vegetable soup (2004) Tea (2003) and a few cans of beans and veggies without dates bought around the same time as the expired stuff. I know taste can be affect after a while but are they still safe? the cans aren't bulging or dented. are there any types of can good that are not good to eat after X # of years? Thanks.
