Dave's Cupboard: Turkish Cheese 1 - Piknik White Cheese
"testing" food by eating it is absurd.

Look, this is serious. The most distressing risk from improperly canned food is botulism, which can be deadly in very small amounts. If this cheese was contaminated with botulism, you most likely wouldn't be experiencing symptoms yet, because it apparently can take 36 hours to 3 days for symptoms to present, or longer, when ingested.

Here in the US we had a botulism problem with some canned foods back in 2007. The infected cans began to explode.

You need to read up on the symptoms and seek medical help immediately if you or anyone to whom you fed this cheese begins to experience them.

I agree with appletart and wyogal

Eating anything from a can that has exploded on its own (ie not from heating the contents, etc) is extremely foolhardy, IMO.

Like apple and GB have pointed out, food poisoning can take up to 48 hours to present. And some forms of it have symptoms you might not recognize as being from foodbourne illness.

A foreign product with foreign labeling that explodes in my kitchen is going directly in the trash and any remnants of it are going to be cleaned with antibacterial wipes or bleach.

Yeah, it tastes great. :) I gave it a wash, after it exploded out of the can, and put it in the fridge. We still have some of it left. The use by date isnt until December, so it shouldnt have gone bad, until some time after then, if it hadnt been opened.
Are you out of your mind? Appletart already mentioned botulism, which FYI produces the deadliest toxin on earth. For the love of God throw it out!

Agreed, but just for reference's sake, Velveeta came in a can long ago...

Or at least just inject it into your face if you want to get some use out of it!

Must have been a VERY long time ago. I only ever remember the box. Kept crayons and pencils in those boxes forever it seems. Just how old ARE you MetalChef? You look younger than me...or is that just Oil of Olay at work?

Sorry. Had a major brain cramp. It wasn't Velveeta.

It was this stuff....
