Dutch tuna pate slightly bulged, normal?

Post by mre360 » Fri Nov 18, 2022 11:29 pm

I recently picked up a little container of Dutch tuna pate for 20 cents when I made a military surplus order.
Does the foil part always look a little puffed up, or is there something wrong with it?
I'm not familiar with this sort of packaging.

Never eat any swollen/puffed up containers, it´s probably spoiled (botulism).

That sort of packaging usually doesn’t last beyond it’s best by date.
Don’t consume it.
