Refrigatoring mandarin oranges?
I have a unopened can of mandarin oranges, and they do not expire until Jan 2011... but they have been in my frige for over nine months is it okay to refrigate somthing that long... since there not opened... I fed them to my nine month old just wanted to make sure... is there a big difference between the cupboard and fride? Their safe right?

  • An unopened can is fine if it's not past the expiration date.

  • they are perfectly safe. no worries.

    the rule with canned goods (even expired ones) is that as long as the can isn't compromised the contents aren't either.

  • They should be fine, but you should not give citrus to a child under age one.
