On average, canned meats, tuna and vegetables have a shelf life of 5 years. Fruits and vegetables, including canned tomatoes, have a shelf life of 1.5 to 2 years.
Some canned foods may not have listed expiration dates. However, the cans may be stamped with a best-by date or sell-by date.
Over time, canned food can lose its texture as well as taste. Keeping canned goods in a cool and dry location aids in extending its shelf life.Learn more about Food Facts
