hi guys! i got a can of spaghetti-O's that has a date on it. it says aug 7, 2008. is this the date it was canned or is it an expiration date? we've eaten our own canned food when it was well over 15 years old. my boyfriens argues that this can of spaghetti-O's is not good to eat, but i recalls someone saying that canned food does not go bad unless the can has been open for a while should i just eat it? i'm starving!
