Canned soup expired in 2010, still good to eat?

I've got some expired 2010, 2011, 1013 ect.....eat or throw out?

1013? That one probably not...

2010? Sure. Open it, smell it, taste it.

Eat it as long as it doesn't bulge. I eat older cans all the time.

I've found the newer pop top cans do develop corrosion right along the seam of the poptop, and am cautious with those.

I've noticed Chef Boy Ardee has switched back to normal cans, but Dinty Moore, Hormel, etc... are still using pop tops.

I've had chicken soup from 2007. It didn't have the flavor of new, but I didn't get sick either.

It's ok to eat it, I have eating some older that that.
The best test is the smell test, if it smells OK, it's ok to eat it.

I have some at home a bit older than that and the contents taste like metal. Otherwise it isn't spoiled or bad in any way. The soup just tastes like crap.

Is it bulging or rusty? If not, then it isn't expired.

most dates are for stock rotating purposes, and to cause people to go buy more when they dont need it. Not that it is "bad" past said date

I think there is a law that mandates all food have some kind of expiration date on it. Air is a foods worst enemy. I'd say that as long as something is air tight it could long outlive it's expansion date by several years.

I had an experience this week with a restaurant 2-pack of saltine crackers. I was nuking some chili, saw a bag of crackers left over from an office lunch and grabbed a few packs. I put the first saltine in my mouth and about threw up. I was like I just ate a spoonful of bondo. The chemical taste was aweful. I emailed Keebler and got this reply:

Thank you for the time you took to connect with us about Keebler® Zesta® Crackers. I am so sorry this product did not meet your expectations.

Because many of our foods are dry in composition, they can absorb and retain strong smelling external vapors. If your crackers was stored near any other strong-smelling foods or non-food items during distribution or storage, it may have caused the foul chemical odor flavor you described.

Product quality is extremely important to Keebler. Learning about your experience helps our management team make informed decisions about future changes.

We want to restore your faith in us, so we are sending you one free product coupon . Please allow 7-10 days for delivery. I hope you will replace the crackers, or try one of our other wholesome and delicious items that feed you well from breakfast through lights out.

Please know that we genuinely appreciate your honest feedback. You are a valued part of our family and we are happy to hear from you at any time.

Your canned food will still be safe to eat for 100 years. As other have said as long as the can is not compromised.

Here food was tested that was found on the bottom of the Mississippi river.

I voted throw out since soup is cheap, but if the can isn't bulged, and it smells ok, its probably ok to eat...although I would not since I can afford to buy fresh food.

As long as the can isn't corroded it should be OK.

Eat it or throw it out..

If it is spoiled, don't feed it to your dog.

Option 4 is a NOGO. I've sorted food donations for the local food drive a few times and they would have thrown it out. by their rules, packages can't be more than 30 days past the expiration date to keep.

I would also avoid if the can is dented. I was told that there is a coating on the inside of the can that can be compromised if the can is dented.
