I have a can of water chestnuts with an exp. date of 4/26/2011. A year past exp. Are they safe to eat? Thanks.

  1. They should be fine.

    Unless the can is bulging or squirts water when you open it. In that case, discard.

      Thanks!

    2. I would discard, unless you've already consumed. These are so affordable in my area, I wouldn't take the chance. Just my two cents.

      1. Perfectly fine.

        1. Unless the can looks suspect in some way (rusty, bulging, etc.), they'll be fine.

          Been there, done that. :)
