How long do Chinese Boiled Salted Duck eggs last?

I have a container of these that I got at Ranch 99 awhile back. They're probably 6-8 months old. They're not the "Preserved Duck Eggs" but rather "Boiled Salted Duck Shownice Eggs"...but they look pretty similar. They're still individually vacuum-sealed. Does anyone know if these would still be safe to eat?

  1. They're fine. I would keep them in the fridge.

    By the way, are you sure they aren't raw (as opposed to already boiled)?

    1. Thanks for the reply...I feel better about them now. :) On the package it says "Boiled Salted" so I am assuming they would be boiled, unless it is a euphemistic term (i.e. Hundred Year Old eggs, which aren't really 100 years old.). I have attached a picture.

        You're fine. Go and enjoy, they're great in oatmeal.

      2. They should be fine. Of course, if they tastes foul, then don't eat they. Look like they are not the regular salted eggs. Enjoy.

        1. i am still standing after eating a slice of these that have been in the fridge for around 5 years.
