Ok, as I will soon be embarking off to college (a military college where a BoB isnt in your issued gear and thus I would get gigged for it on room inspections) so, I will be storing away some canned foods to test their shelf life. On the list

3 cans Spam
3 cans corn
3 cans tomato sauce
3 cans tuna (I bet you this goes bad)
3 cans peaches
and various other fruits and veggies

Assuming the EOTWAWKI doesnt occur during my 4 years of reg college in conjunction with two years of med. school, I shall post my results in this thread.

Now, ladies and gents, we wait.:sleep::whip:

The tuna might go bad. Sometimes it seems like a crap shoot with canned tuna and sardines. Have have had some go bad after just a few months and some that have been on the shelf for a couple of years with no problem.

I say one can will be bad, but the other two will be fine.

I'm guessing most, if not all, will be good. However, 6 yrs is a BIT long.
I just ate a can of ravioli that had 10/08 as an expiration date. Been in my pantry for years. Ate it yest. Was still good. No adverse effects.
