Canned pumpkin with expiration date of April 2010...Use it or toss it?

Recommended Posts

It's been stored in my pantry, and the can isn't damaged. The date on the can is a "Best Buy" date, so wouldn't that mean that it's still safe, just might not be premium quality? The brand is Libby's, that makes a difference.

I would go by the condition of the can. Does it seem swollen? When you open the can, does it seem to 'pop' like there was pressure inside? If yes, then I would toss it. If no, and the pumpkin doesn't smell off, then I would use it.

Use it. But with pumpkin, I always check that the can "sucks" when I open it. I've had cans of pumpkin (not even expired) sort of explode when I opened them. The cans weren't swollen.
