    I wrote to Chicken of the Sea to ask about the length of time BEYOND the expiration date their products can be used for POUCH products.

    This is their Email reply:

    Our pouch product has a 3 year shelf life for the best flavor. We are happy to announce that the “best by” date has been placed on all of our Chicken of the Sea products since 2007.

    This is the link to their website for CANNED products:

    Commercially canned and pouched food may be safely stored for several years as long as the container is not bulged, damaged or leaking in any manner. A concern with prolonged periods of storage is that the product begins to lose some if its palatability. We recommend that stocks of canned or pouched goods be rotated in your normal food supply so that none is stored much longer than a year prior to consumption.
