OK guys all you pro’s out there I have a question. I was going through some of my stock, I like to check on things about every 5 years. I found a gallon bag of dehydrated pears that the seal was broken on. I wanted to cry. Are they ruined? They look ok, Should I taste them? Out of about 50 bags this was the only bag that had a broken seal. They were packaged using a food dehydrator and an 02 absorber, then they were placed in a mylar with 02 absorbers, then in a large plastic bucket with a lid? Should I just toss them, or do you think they are ok? I hate to loose a whole gallon of pears that could possibly still be good. Maybe I just need to use them now? I like to check my storage about every 5 years, I don’t mind the waste of 02’s, just to make sure my stores are still good. I can re-seal the large mylar bag with new 02’s, it just makes me more comfortable to go through and check things. It’s sort of like rotating cans to me Help anyone got any suggestions?
