Hey My DC Buddies!

I have a question for you. I had canned some tomatoes in '06. Put them in a cool dry, etc.etc. Well last year we moved to Texas and my tomatoes somehow ended up packed and in a storage unit for all of last year. Mind you, we had a hot one last year while we were there and I'm sure the unit was above 100 many days.
The question, Do you think they're still safe to use? I have always lived by the saying, "when in doubt, throw it out." (better than taking a chance on getting sick)
The seal is still good, they look fine but...
Thoughts? Opinions?
