Were the jars hot, warm, or cold? Had the jars sealed? If the jars were cold (out of the canner 24 hours) and sealed, there would be no problem. If the jars were hot, then you have a problem. The jars would not have sealed properly if put in the refrigerator hot.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
