Expired MRE's?

25189 17
I've got a couple cases of MRE's from the early 80's. For emergency use, how important is the expiration on MRE's? Would the meal portion be spoiled?

As a avid MRE guy, I use the tabasco bottle method if its dry or the liquid is clear it might be too old. Another way is smell, as was mentioned earlier in this thread the 80's MRE's had been freeze dried. The newer ones if they are bad you will know it as soon as you open the pack. I have NEVER EVER had a bad MRE some I thought may have been close to being bad.

For storage I keep them in my basement storage room and the older one I rotate into the freezer.
