Can I re-dehydrate 1 year old dehydrated beans?

They were dehydrated green beans, Zagut. If they're "off" they could be dangerous for anyone, and I wouldn't feed them to the birds either!

I agree, Dawg. People have evolved to recognize bad food for a reason. Those who ate it died.

Dawgluver, I'll admit I thought the OP was talking about dried beans like Navy Beans or Black beans.

I still stand by my statement about them being safe.

I wouldn't eat them for the reasons I stated but.......

FSHN0406/FS104: Preventing Foodborne Illness: Clostridium botulinum

How to Dehydrate Foods

5 Ways to Prevent Botulism - wikiHow

Removing the Risk of Botulism From Canning

Now as far as feeding them to the wildlife goes....

Ma Nature tends to have a way of letting her creatures know what and what not to eat. I defer to her and offer what I can to my fellow travelers in this journey of life and let them pick and choose.

Some of the things my kitties eat would make me sick for sure. But they suffer no ill effects.

You love dogs.
So do I. (But cats rule )
But just think of some of the things you've seen them chew on?
And I'll bet you still let them kiss you.

because of the smell, i wouldn't serve them to most indoor animals, human or other. however, birds are ok to give them to. their digestive and immune systems are radically different than mammals. they're little dinosaurs, after all.
also, like zagut said, they seem to know what they can and cannot eat.

and dogs drool, lol

Not beagles! (Unless there's a bunny out there somewhere...)

Zagut, you seem to be missing the point. Why in the would you "still stand by your statement of them being safe"?

You obviously must not have read the links you posted.
  • If there is mold on or strange discoloration of the food, discard it.

Exactly, Kayelle. Hopefully the OP didn't taste-test them. And I still wouldn't feed them to ANY living thing.

Kayelle, I stand by my statement because there is no mention of mold and I also said I wouldn't consume it myself. I suggested it be fed to the birds and other critters that inhabit this earth with us. Guess I just hate to see things sent to the landfill and figure Ma Nature is smarter then me.

Mold and bacteria are not the same thing. As I said, bacteria produce toxins that have no odor or flavor but are poisonous. I also try to minimize what goes in the landfill from my household, but not to the point of endangering other animals.

Use it in your compost heap.
