    It depends on the canned good, some last longer than others, though many of them can last a very long time. It’s best to check the expiration date.

    Some can last a very long time due to the preservatives usually added to help them last longer. Most canned foods have an expiration date on the can, look for it and this may be helpful in determining how long the food is good for.
