They should be ready to eat. I'm not sure why it has oil added. That will affect the storage life. The freezer would be the best place to store it as long as there is electricity. I would bag it in gal. or qt. zip lock freezer bags.

So does that mean they're already hulled?

OP, what do they look like?

I'm not sure that's going to last long because of the oil. Without it, oats last really well in storage. But that oil is going to go rancid and when it does, it'll take the oats with it.

Crimped doesn't sound like dehulled.
It's hard for humans to process the hulls, some animals not so much.
I have yet to see dehulled oats at the feed stores. And I can't come up with an economical way to get them off myself.

As is I usually just buy the big boxes of Quaker oats at places like Costco.

If you have a bulk food store in your area, you can usually buy 50 lb bags of rolled oats. I can get them for $24.
