Re: HELP! Australian CR1M 2011-2012 - Safe to eat?

2) How can I tell if a main is no good, other than the smell? 3) Are the soups safe to consume if, by some miracle, they reconstitute? 4) Are the high energy sports drinks safe to consume if the packs are airtight but the goods have changed texture and appearance? 5) Do the tubes of sweetened conde...

Another subtle clue: I believe since 2013 US MREs included a french translation which was printed below the English menu name.

Re: How old are we?

Got these two guys today loose and I'd like to know how old they are. Is there a "photo ID" page somewhere where you find the approximate date of an MRE based on the appearance of the pouch? That is, did the "look" change in a consistent way so that you can tell the age just by the appearance (asid...

Re: What MRE is this?

Hey guys I bought these overpriced suckers in New York City at an army navy shop a while ago. Anyone know what they are? I think they’re made by Ameriqual.

Re: HELP! Australian CR1M 2011-2012 - Safe to eat?

if the museli had dried/powdered milk, it can go real bad without any signs and you won't know until it's too late. Better not to risk it. as for the main...smell, bloating, and look are the 3 main things I look for. Use your best judgement. Dried items like soups and beverage powders can harden an...
