Now, what fun would that be?

The so-called POP is air rushing INTO the can, not OUT OF the can. Food in cans is vacuum packed, not pressurized.

There is no problem but it is always a good idea to smell it before you put into your food. So far I have not had any problems.

Although I do try to rotate stock, I keep canned goods a long time. As long as the seal hasn't been broken, they're just fine...to a point. I've got a couple cans of pumpkin that are at least 5 years old...maybe more. I think it's time for them to go.
