    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Most canned food has a suggested shelf life of at least two years. Yet it can remain preserved for much longer. Recently a man in England opened and ate a 50 year old can of chicken, with no ill effects.

      • We won't be running out of aluminum for cans anytime soon. It is the most abundant metal in the earth's crust.

      • The ideal shelf life of many canned beers is no longer than one hundred and twenty days. However, such factors as pasteurization, refrigeration and alcohol content can extend the shelf life.

      • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV set for three hours.
