Canning - Fallen Jar

SO i just started canning yesterday and I was wondering a couple of things about pressure canning potatoes. I tried to do new potatoes becuase my dad and i used to buy them in the can all the time when i still lived with him. How ever in the pressure cooker one of my jars fell over and i was wondering if that could screw the other two jars that were with it? And what if the jar sealed after tipping over? I know it's probably still not safe to store so I'm going to eat tonight i was just wondering about those two things.

Again, I'm brand new at this so I'm still learning quite a bit.

Next time, put some extra jars of water in to keep them all upright. You are right to use the one that tipped over right away, but the others should be fine, as long as you followed directions.

Just wondering, why would't it be safe to store? So long as it was sealed?

There is no guarantee it sealed properly in a vacuum since the purging process was compromised. Just sealing is not a guarantee.
