Question Worcestershire sauce: how long does it last?

Does anyone know the shelf life of Worchestershire sauce after it has been opened? I have a gallon of it that is quite old and am unsure if I should use it.

agreed, it does last quite a long time, although you will need to give it a shake before use as some of the particulate matter will settle over time.

Well, It was given to me and I am guessing it is anywhere between 2-4 years old. I know that the last bottle that I bought had an expiration date for 2008. I just do not want to get anyone sick.

Thank you for replying.

I have never had it go bad and have used some that was over 6 years old.

hmmmm...not really sure. I ususally go through a bottle every year and sometimes sooner than a year.

That brings up a good point.........when we were moving last February I cleaned out the refrigerator and cabinets and noted the expirations date on several things that were expired..... things I didn't even think about checking for an expiration date. Now I really check my items.

It would take me years to go through a gallon of that stuff.

But it's basically indestructable.
