I would have eaten it too. Shoot I buy things that are expired. Haven't died once that I'm aware of.

You're not very likely to get sick from canned foods anyway! They're shelf stable! Things you're more likely to get food poisoning from are fresh. Would you eat a steak, pork chop, salsa, mixed salad? Those are on the top of the list!

I've gotten mild food poisoning from 3 very nice restaurants and pretty nasty food poisoning from some chicken satay at a baby shower.

Re: to eat or toss?

I have Crohn's Disease so I am so careful about eating food that may not be good anymore. I would have tossed it.

3 months isn't 'months' IMO.

How is it not "months"? It's more than 1 month.

Re: to eat or toss?

I would have tossed, but I'm crazy about expiration dates! I toss stuff the day before it expires. (And it drives DH crazy...)

Glad it was yummy and no one got sick!!
