1965(?) Chicken and Noodles MCI question

Postby gerogerigegege » Sat Sep 23, 2017 6:03 pm

I was recently gifted a MCI. Most of the cans appeared to be in good condition, but the chicken and noodles seems like it might be slightly bulged. Before I take a headfirst dive into lake botulism, I'd like some input on how far gone this can looks. I know that the smell and what it looks like on the inside will probably say far more than just the condition of the can, but I'm waiting for the right time to open this up. I'll be taking pictures and posting a review when I do.

Tried to get an angle that shows the shape of the top.

I can almost guarantee you 100% that the food is spoiled. Not worth it to eat, however it is worth it to visually inspect it and up to you if you want to engage your sense of smell when doing so!
