Can brown rice get old?

It has never been opened...is in one of those square, plastic containers.

Thanks for any info.

Yes, and it can get rancid. It's not a bad idea to store brown rice in the freezer to keep that from happening, unless you use it every day.

Actually, we've had some stuff at the store - it has been pitched in the trash!

We don't sell food products in the wine shop but a past employee talked the owner into buying all her inventory when she closed her shop in Florida. Needless to say I am throwing all of it away as WE have had it a couple or more years - no telling how long she has had it. I called a couple of the distributors and when I gave them the UPC codes they laughed - We are once again "foodless"
