Check food expiry dates when you change your clocks in the fall and replace as needed. Food that is dehydrated to levels required to remain shelf stable when properly stored over long periods of time, technically has no expiry date in Canada. But we do encourage people to rotate their Emergency or Disaster Preparedness stocks to maintain freshness.
Food can be used and replaced if nearing its best before date. If you stock canned food, include a manual can opener in your kit. If you include a camping stove, do not use it indoors and have a plan for getting fuel when needed. It is safest, and therefore strongly recommended, that you purchase bottled water for your emergency kits.
