#TheMayaKitchen helps you make the most out of your canned goods with these useful tips on storing them properly.
Canned food storage guidelines:
- Canned food is safe to eat for 2 to 5 years (applies to pork, beef, poultry and fish).
- Cans that are bulging or smell off should be thrown away. It could be a sign of C. botulinum, which can cause severe food poisoning.
- Store them in a cool, dry and dark place. Keep them away from direct sunlight and other sources of heat.
- Once opened, quickly refrigerate and store any unused portion in a resealable container.
