There should be a number you can call on the back of the can, Libby's anyway. I called it a few years ago and used to know..... I remember you are supposed to take it out of the can, like you are thinking of doing. And you can feeze it out of the can, which if you are going to divide it up, would be a great way for you to go. Then you can take it out of the feezer as needed.
That said, I've kept it in the can with a plastic lid on it for maybe 8-9 days and it seemed fine.
