Probably should toss, but if it were mine...I'd use it no problem. But that is just me.

I'd toss it, but I'm a real chicken when it comes to questioning things like this. Back to the old Mantra...."when in doubt, throw it out".

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

This sauce is fermented so it shouldn't really go bad. But as said before, for two bucks you can have some peace of mind.

If you had it stored in the 'fridge, then most likely cold air in the bottle (which was confined to a specific volume) increased in pressure as it absorbed thermal energy from it's warmer surroundings. Then you got a pop upon opening it.

I would throw that one away...but under normal circumstances, the sauce lasts for years in the pantry
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

The bottle I currently have open pops when I flip the cap. I haven't noticed any change in the taste and it's almost gone anyway. It's French's, but it was $1 at Walmart so I wouldn't be surprised if it was low quality.

From the manufacturer's mouth...

Okay, I found this thread after my own bottle of French's Worcestershire sauce not only popped and produced a cloud of fog, but actually foamed up like a beer!

I called the 800 number on the bottle. The rep I spoke to said this is actually normal for fresh bottles. I don't remember seeing it happen before, but since I tend to go through a bottle about once every ten years, that's not too surprising. It's also not surprising if you remember that Worcestershire is a fermented product.

If it does kill me, I'll be sure to post a followup message warning everybody.
