seems the 'best by' date has to be printed somewhere on the can or label. I'm not sure of that but do know that Campbells tomato soup with a little hot salsa mixed in when heating and saltine sandwich made with Smuckers 'natural' (no corn syrup, preservatives etc) peanut butter is a fine lunch. add a can of viennas and an apple and good to go.

I quit buying their soup after the prices got to be the same or slightly more than the other non-condensed soups that taste good.

Keep an eye on cans with pop tops. They aren't meant for long term storage. They can and do fail.

We bought a bunch of their chicken noodle soup marked to expire August 2013, good enough for me.

Canned foods are safe to eat indefinately as long as the can remains sealed. Del Monte, Hormel, and even the FDA are on record as saying that. But the taste and texture can go downhill over the years. Some foods are worse at it than others. But most canned goods that I've eaten way past their "best by" date (that is NOT an expiration date) have been fine. However, I don't buy canned soups, so I can't give you any idea of what they will taste like after years of storage, only that they will be safe to eat if the can is still sealed.

Oops. I somehow thought that you were referring to the condensed type. I should have asked. Their UN-condensed (like Chunky) is something I will buy, along with other brands of the same type.
