.......my son does that too - I can't imagine that it would hurt anything - unless that's what has made him so cranky sometimes!

I buy the huge cans...divide it up and freeze it. Then when I want some just microwave until it's defrosted which is about a minute. It's always cold that way. I didnt' even think of freezing tuna until last year when I read it somewhere. (this is just the tuna...not tuna with the mayo). I thought this might help someone who doesn't use the whole can at a time.

At work, we keep the canned tuna in the walk-in fridge all the time. That way, when we mix it with the mayo we also keep in there, we are sure it's at 40 degrees when it goes out into the deli station.

Make sure the can is clean before you put it into the fridge, and then wipe the top before you use the can opener. If it's got condensation on it, the moisture can rust your opener.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Just as long as the can is not opened.
If it's opened, it can become poisonous.

The nursing home where I work keeps their canned tuna in the walk-in. I'm not sure why. I'm just happy that they stopped storing the fresh tomatoes in there, too. I've been fussing about it for several weeks. They finally started keeping them in the pantry about a week ago.

I'm all about the food!
